There are three million reports of suspected child abuse or neglect in the United States every year. One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before age 18. In Northern Kentucky, this means 25,000 children could be affected by this horrific crime and need support from Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center (NKYCAC), the only center of its kind in the region.
The NKYCAC offers services that respond to the concerns of child abuse in a child-focused environment, offering prevention, evaluation and treatment to children and families.
Reporting abuse is one of the most important steps you can take to protect children. If you believe a child is being abused or neglected, you must call the Child Protection Hot Line or your local police department. If the child is in immediate danger, CALL 911.
You can join us in the fight against child abuse and help children to a safe childhood. The Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center is a nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible. Click here to donate!
The Northern Kentucky Children's Advocacy Center staff are trained facilitators for the Stewards of Children child sexual abuse prevention program. Read more about the program here. This nationally recognized, research-based training was developed by the Darkness to Light organization and is available to community groups by calling us at 859-442-3200.
Adults who participate in Stewards of Children training will learn how sexual abuse affects the entire community. They will learn about the long-term and often devastating effects that sexual abuse has on individuals. Most important, participants will leave with simple, proactive strategies for protecting children.
Social work is the profession of hope—fueled by resilience and advocacy. Social workers matter because every day they help millions of struggling people dream differently. In the United States, more than 650,000 of these highly trained professionals know how daunting and immobilizing life’s tragedies and obstacles can be. But they also witness the sheer determination of countless individuals and families to achieve different lives. Sometimes, all it takes to help people get on the right path is guidance toward what is possible. Other times, social workers are an immediate lifeline in crisis—providing access to resources and new life options.
Those served by social workers possess many strengths that keep them fighting for a better future despite personal and systemic barriers to success. They climb toward what is possible rather than simply accepting what the current situation may be. Professional social workers help combine these client strengths with effective personal and public advocacy.
