TAKE ACTION YOU CAN MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE

Every day in this country, five children die as a result of abuse. More than 80 percent of these children are not yet old enough for kindergarten.

Join the actions of Child Abuse Prevention Month. Help us raise awareness through education and community support; help us create a dialogue around the need for stronger laws and life-changing services that help keep our children safe; and help us strengthen our prevention, intervention and treatment programs so that we can save more children from abuse and neglect.

We must get more people talking about the issue of child abuse and neglect. Throughout the month of April, it is our goal to light up social media and bring together a community that supports victims and their families. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter; download our Profile Picture Frame and let's stand up against abuse together. Thousands of people are helping us. Are you ready to TAKE ACTION?

Meet Zachary

Zachary was removed from his biological mother when he was about three months old. The foster care parent with whom Zachary was placed adopted him, and for a while he reportedly did well and was known to be healthy. Then his adoptive mother withdrew him from school and insisted on homeschooling him. Zachary all but disappeared.

It's not an exaggeration to say that Zachary was tortured. Thankfully, his story didn't end there.

Because one concerned person recognized the signs of abuse and called a hotline ... because investigators got involved and discovered the truth ... and because Childhelp was there to fast-track intervention and treatment, Zachary didn't become a statistic.

We were able to save Zachary's life and end the cycle of abuse because of supporters like you.

His story proves just how much your investment in Childhelp matters in a child's life.
