The Issue: Child Abuse Can Be Difficult to Identify

According to data cited by Darkness to Light, approximately one in four girls and one in six boys were sexually abused before the age of 18 in the United States, and 73 percent of them did not tell anyone about the abuse for at least a year.

The Campaign: Teach Adults to Recognize and Prevent Abuse

If this Grassroots campaign raises $50, then Greater Richmond SCAN can fund child-abuse-prevention training for one childcare professional. Each additional $50 raised will fund training for another professional. The three-hour Darkness to Light Stewards of Children training session covers a variety of topics including the types of situations where child abuse might occur, signs of sexual abuse, the importance of talking about prevention with other adults, and strategies for protecting children.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

Greater Richmond SCAN

Greater Richmond SCAN aims to prevent child abuse and neglect in the region by providing resources for children who have been abused and promoting positive parenting techniques. The organization maintains five distinct programs to combat child abuse, including preschool education, family support, and a prevention program that sponsors awareness-raising events. For those who have been abused, the organization runs a child-advocacy center that works within the court system and a court-appointed-special-advocate program that sends professionals to represent children in court. SCAN also runs a variety of fundraising programs throughout the year to spread awareness about family violence, including a 5K run and mardi gras celebration.
