Blue pinwheels give voice to children who have died from abuse

  • Blue pinwheels give voice to children who have died from abuse

"Pennsylvania's children need us to do everything we can to protect them today and in the future". "You also talk about the kids who step up and they're the heroes that have to face their predators". You become the "go-to-parent" and lines of communication are opened.

"Its hard to care for children all day long, day after day", said Logan. This year, the 21st anniversary vigil was held March 27 at King of Glory Lutheran Church on Longhill Road as a kickoff to National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Child abuse does not discriminate by gender or race.

"90% parents know about child sexual abuse only because of workshops conducted by schools, but there isn't anything beyond that for them".

Specially trained people at the center do forensic interviews with a child of abuse.

Todd Shackelford, executive director of the Advocacy Network for Children, said reporting child abuse is vital to preventing it.

It's all to raise awareness about child abuse. At 12:15, a celebration will put the spotlight on those who make children a community priority. That's 350 new children who were victims of abuse in Jefferson County past year. By stepping up and speaking out against child sexual abuse, you are not only saving childhoods, but improving the lives of all of us.

The blue ribbon campaign runs all through the month of April.

Women's Aid in Crisis sexual assault advocate Bobbi Cox and domestic violence advocate Addie Helmick asked the commission to declare April to be Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Increasing education, awareness and community involvement around these sensitive issues is the only way forward, Cox said.

"I have two little girls at home, and it's just sad that anyone could do this to a little child".

"As with all victims, support has been offered throughout the case and this will continue with the help of other agencies and charities". This approach is built on a framework of collaboration between and among community groups, state and local organizations and local teams.
