Founded in 2007 and headquartered in Alpharetta, GA, Children Without A Voice USA is a grass roots 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated and determined in fighting crimes, child abuse and neglect in America through education and advocacy. The founder, Lin Seahorn, is a survivor who has overcome her abusive childhood turned a life of tragedy into one of triumph.
The statistics on crimes against children each year in the U.S. are staggering, sobering and should compel each of us to want to get involved.
According to a recent congressional hearing in Washington in July, 2011, experts testified that they believe nearly 10 children in America die each day, from abuse. That is 4 times the amount of fallen soldiers in the War on Terror. There are so many causes out there that are worthy of our time, money and attention, but children in America and this cause, needs to be among them.
You hear about the horrific child abuse cases in the news each day. Relatives and neighbors said they suspected child abuse but didn’t take the time to report their suspicions to law enforcement. Experts say nearly 3 million child abuse cases go unreported each year. One out of 6 boys and 1 out of 4 girls will be sexually molested by the time they are 18 by a trusted close person, uncle, aunt, sibling, cousin, coach, teacher, neighbor or babysitter. Please get the facts today and educate your children! Nearly 4 out of 10 children will drop out of school this year because they are being bullied at school or abused at home. Furthermore, crimes against children typically carry 25% of the sentencing of the same crime committed against an adult.
How can we help the rest of the world when we aren’t taking care of those in our own back yard? Why do saving animals impact us more than protecting our nation’s children, our future? Join us in being a voice for our kids!
