The Essence of Evil: Sex with Children Has Become Big Business in America | By John W. Whitehead

Not a happy subject but necessary. Please take the time to read and help where you can. If you need ideas of how to help you can start with supporting the Paluxy River Children’s Advocacy Center or the Advocacy Center in your area. They offer free counseling to abused children. The Rainbow Room Of Hood & Somervell Counties helps in emergency situations. We purchased clothes for a foster girl who was rescued from a pimp just last month. Casa HoodSomervell always needs help and support. Don’t be silent. Our kids need us.

Children, young girls—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex in America. The average age for a young woman being sold for sex is now 13 years old. Sex trafficking—especially when it comes to the buying and selling of young girls—has become big business in America, the...

Together we can Go Blue to STOP Child Abuse!

One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday.

Most child abuse incidents are drug and alcohol-related.

Within one year of aging out of the foster care system, 66% of victims will be homeless, in jail or dead.

There are over 100,000 children waiting for adoption in the United States.

Join CASA of Hood & Somervell Counties in wearing blue to spread awareness about child abuse!

The Need
Below are statewide statistics that highlight child abuse and neglect as an ongoing epidemic that has a lasting negative impact on the victims, our society and our economy.

In 2018 in Texas:

211 children died from child abuse or neglect.
There were 66,382 confirmed victims of child abuse or neglect.
Almost every 8 minutes, a child became a victim of abuse or neglect.
20,685 children were removed from home due to abuse or neglect. That’s 56 children entering the foster care system each day.
A total of 52,397 children were in the child protection system.
10,856 CASA volunteers advocated for 30,136 children in care in FY 2018 – this still leaves too many children without a dedicated volunteer to speak up for their needs while in care.

#BlueSunday #ChildAbuseAwareness #Prayerforourchildren
#WearBlue

Who: The faith community
What: A day to pray for the millions of victims of child abuse and for those who rescue them
Where: Churches across our nation
When: Sunday, April 28, 2019
Why: April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. It began when a report about abused and neglected children caught the attention of President Ronald Reagan in1983. Sadly, since that first Child Abuse Prevention Month, the number of abused victims has grown from half a million children to over six million new reports of abuse along with 1600 child abuse related deaths annually.
One is too many.

April has been proclaimed by Mayor Hulett as Child Abuse Awareness Month in Granbury. Please wear blue every Friday in April to raise awareness!
#RaiseYourVoice #ProtectLittleTexans #CASACares

Mayor Hulett proclaimed April as Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month in Granbury. Children are the embodiment of dreams and aspirations for the future and, as such, deserve to grow and develop in nurturing environments, free from fear and victimization.

The community is urged to join Mission Granbury and CASA of Hood & Somervell Counties by participating in “Paint the Town Blue” during the month of April by displaying a blue light or sponsoring a CASA blue flag to raise awareness of child abuse which, unfortunately, is present in our community. 💙
