Mission Statement

Child sexual abuse is one of the most serious problems affecting our children, families and communities, causing devastating suffering and long-term consequences. Children of both genders, and every age, ethnicity, socioeconomic status and family structure are at risk. Yet this form of abuse is still regarded in many communities as "taboo" and something to be ignored. Collective silence has caused grave damage to million of children, and protects the abuser. Together, we can do a much better job of learning about an insidious form of abuse and teach kids to better protect themselves.

Description

Stop Abuse was formed in 1986 to prevent child sexual abuse through education, detection and referral. Through its research-based Emmy award-winning marionette program, "Simon Says, 'Just Tell’" schoolchildren from kindergarten through Grade 5 learn to recognize, prevent and disclose abuse in a safe environment.
