Why is it important?

Child abuse and neglect victims often exhibit emotional and behavioral problems growing up (mainly encompassing sexual promiscuity and substance abuse). And tragically enough, they will end up abusing their own children unless stopped.

Why should you help?

Abused children are victims of crime (usually committed by their parent/guardian). These children need YOU to nurture and protect them. By learning how to recognize, report, and prevent child abuse, you can fulfill this fundamental societal responsibility: to protect our children.

How can you help?

  1. Contact Dallas Child Protective Services if you notice any signs of abuse/neglect in family or friends.

  2. Volunteer your time to Prevent Child Abuse Texas.
