Prevent Child Abuse Texas
Prevent Child Abuse Texas

February, 2013

I am writing about an organization that means a great deal to me.  As a member of Prevent Child Abuse Texas, I would like to share with you some sad facts about an epidemic that is affecting the lives of America’s children.  More than three million children are reported as abused or neglected in America every year, with one million of those cases being confirmed.  And, sadly, over 270 children died in Texas alone last year from child abuse or neglect.

 

While these statistics are horrifying, there is hope.  We know that child abuse and neglect are preventable.  There is no reason for this many children to not enjoy a sense of security in the one place they should expect it most – home. 

 

I am asking you to consider joining Prevent Child Abuse Texas in our efforts by:

Our mission is to prevent the abuse and neglect of our state’s children.  In our pursuit of that mission, we are striving to:

 

*        Find more answers to learn how to prevent child abuse and neglect

 

*        Establish child abuse and neglect prevention as a public policy priority at the state and local levels

 

*        Promote effective prevention programs at the community level

 

But there is still much work to do.  Child maltreatment has more than one solution, and you'll find them all around us-they're our neighbors, friends, faith groups, medical professionals, and schools.  Research shows that abuse and neglect are much less likely to occur when families are supported by a caring community.

 

Engaging communities in the important work of strengthening families and valuing children are the core values of Prevent Child Abuse Texas.  We provide community based programs and services that support parents and reduce the likelihood of child maltreatment.

You can make a difference in the lives of children.  With your help, we can stop this violence – and bring hope to America's children.  I encourage you to join us in our efforts today. You can make a difference in the lives of our children.
