'To promote prevention & awareness of child abuse (physical, sexual, bullying)'
On October, 3rd 2012 Payton’s Promise Child Abuse Prevention Center was launched. This is the first and only Child Abuse Advocacy Center in Mecklenburg and Guilford County exclusively focusing on Child Abuse Advocacy with an extracurricular scholarship program (0-19 years old).
Payton’s Promise is currently located Uptown Charlotte, NC on the 16th & 17th floors of the Bank of America building (9th & N. Tryon). Due to the overwhelming response to our call for action we can open our free standing facilities in Greensboro & Charlotte, NC by Aug 19th, 2015 with your help.
Child Abuse has gotten out of control. It seems each week there's a new story or confession from a coach or trusted individual of this despicable act against children. Nearly five children die every day in America from child abuse and neglect. In 2009 an estimated 12,000 children in Mecklenburg & Guilford COUNTY alone were victims of abuse.
What will happen at Payton's Promise?
Prevention and Awareness programs to address the following: Child Sexual Abuse, Bullying (including Cyber), and Physical Abuse
Free Volunteer Screening Program: Let’s face it. People are not always truthful about their past! Most organizations who have volunteers working with children either don’t know how or can't afford to do background checks and we all know the devastating consequences of this. How many times have you volunteered for an organization with children? Did you go through a sex offender screening?
Extracurricular Scholarships- Victims and their siblings will be eligible for this program. We support everything from the Arts to Athletics.
Parent/Teacher Training Programs (What are the signs of abuse? Is he a victim? Is she a perpetrator? What can I do?)
We seek to equip our community with tools to battle these tragic occurrences and to provide education and awareness to prevent abuse from happening to more children. If you could do something about child abuse would you?
Your small act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intentions!
