LEARN THE SIGNS | SPEAK UP |  REPORT ABUSE

Choosing the right person to care for your child, including a partner, is one of the most important decisions a parent can make. Unsafe caregivers could be your boyfriend/girlfriend, relative, or neighbor. Statistics show that children are more likely to be abused, neglected or DIE at the hands of an unsafe caregiver than from a stranger.


The objective of our "Think Before you Trust"™  Campaign is to:

•Increase awareness among parents of the risk their children face when a non-related male/female is entrusted with their care
•Provide tools to help parents better evaluate the likelihood that their paramour could become a perpetrator of abuse
•Educate parents to help them recognize potential signs of abuse to their children

•Educate parents about potential community resources for child care  (other than non-related male/female)
•Increase community awareness of the problem and its overall impact on the community
