Child sexual abuse isn’t always an obvious issue. In too many cases, the victims are either scared by the perpetrator into not talking, or are “groomed” to believe the activities they’re involved in are normal and okay. Because of this, children who escape sexual abuse often struggle to live an ordinary life. They may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, drug abuse and other issues. We fight to ensure justice is served to anyone who perpetrates this heinous crime.More About Us
