Our mission is to shed light into the darkness that surrounds crimes against children by educating the public about the prevalence and consequences of child abuse in our our community and to change the way society perceives these issues. We are determined to create a safer environment for children who are at risk of being abused, neglected, or sexually exploited through education, advocacy and community outreach.
Our growing concern for ALL children and their safety is the driving force behind our mission to do all that is necessary to ensure that these innocent victims are given the opportunity to thrive and live the life that was meant for them to live.
Determined to ensure that no child should suffer what I and millions of others have suffered and that all childrens' voices are heard, I founded this organization in the Winter of 2013.
Having been a victim of child sexual abuse at a very young age and a witness to long-term emotional and physical abuse towards other young members of my family, I vowed to do my part to protect children everywhere from the horrors of child abuse and neglect in all of its forms and to break the cycle of abuse and destruction. I believe that every child has a right to grow up free from the shadow of abuse and that the responsibility to protect our children rests solely in the hands of the adults in their lives, as well as with the community. As adults (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors, etc.) and members of the community we must all remain vigilant and dedicate no less than the best of ourselves to that purpose.
No child should ever feel unloved or alone, nor should any child ever live in fear.
Together we CAN and will make a difference!
Please join me today and pledge to do all that you can to protect the children in your family...in your community.
"To all the victims of abuse -- male and female, adult and children, known and unknown: I pledge to educate myself about the realities of child abuse; I pledge to give a voice and report any and all suspicions; I pledge to cast a light into the darkness by doing the right thing the first time, every time."

Project C.H.A.N.C.E. is a grass roots 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was created on a promise to protect children everywhere from the horrors of child abuse and neglect in all of its forms and to break the cycle of violence before it starts. We are committed to raising awareness and preventing crimes against children, child abuse and neglect through education, advocacy and community outreach.
Project C.H.A.N.C.E. raises awareness and provides education on these issues by promoting/organizing events that will alert the public of this growing epidemic; by educating the community on every aspect of child abuse through successful campaigns that provide educational materials and literature concerning child abuse and neglect; by providing family and peer support; and by connecting parents and caregivers who might otherwise be at risk of abusing their children with community resources that will provide them with the skills, and coping strategies that will allow them to parent effectively.
