- 1 in 4 girls will be sexually abused before her 18th birthday, as will 1 out of 6 boys, but only 1 in 10 will tell someone.
- Professionals who suspect abuse make a report to CPS or law enforcement only 30% of the time.
The CAC offers training programs at no cost to groups of adults in our community to help them understand how to recognize abuse and their responsibilities in reporting. If you know a school group, church group or other organizations who will work with children on a regular basis that would benifit from this training, please refer them to us at 903-957-0440.
