Why raising awareness is so important....

In 2016, more than 1,750 children died in the United States from abuse and neglect.

According to child protective service agencies, about 676,000 children were victims of child abuse or neglect in 2016, although this number likely underestimates the true occurrence.

One in 4 children have experienced abuse or neglect at some point in their lives and 1 in 7 experienced abuse or neglect in the past year.

The total lifetime cost associated with just 1 year of confirmed cases of child abuse or neglect is $124 billion.
