Mission Statement

Word and Action, Inc. (W&A) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that aims to prevent and/or decrease the occurrence of child sexual abuse in our community.​ W&A promotes a culturally-based approach to child sexual abuse prevention and treatment while expanding its partnership and network nationally and internationally.

Description

Word and Action (W&A) is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 2009 by psychotherapist, Georges Bossous, Jr., who after many years of practice, had identified a need for cultural competency when treating Haitian victims of child sexual abuse and their affected loved ones.

This outline was shared with friends and co-workers and became the catalyst for the launching of Word and Action (W&A). Mr. Bossous’ understanding of the Haitian paternalistic culture, coupled with his years of expertise as a psychotherapist and passion for the cause, fueled his desire for addressing the issue of cultural competency in prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse affecting the Haitian Community. As a result, W&A’s goal is to respond more effectively to the child sexual abuse "epidemic."

W&A was officially incorporated on September 16, 2009. The agency has been conducting various fundraising activities to support its work in the counties of Miami-Dade and Broward. The agency is currently very active in numerous seminars, panel discussions, conferences, and trainings pertaining to Child Sexual Abuse.
