Tonight many are in a home with an abuser. That reality hangs heavy on my conscience. Most child abuse is reported to teachers so it is our moral responsibility to fill that gap for our most vulnerable. It’s our responsibility to promote awareness of how to check on families, how to report abuse, and how to support our fellow organizations caring for our most vulnerable families. Tonight, tomorrow and weeks from now they will be in the trenches.
We know that this time is stressful and you aren’t alone. If you suspect someone you know is being abused, it is your responsibility to report it. The National Child Abuse Hotline is 1-800-4-A-Child or 1-800-422-4453.
