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.
Campbell County Police Department supports NKYCAC!
“No Shave November”, are you asking what it is???? Well the Campbell County Police Department has taken on a new shaggy (and some may even add chic) look. The police officers will be growing a beard, cultivating a mustache and letting their hair grow out in November…
Throughout the month of November the police in Campbell County will putting down their razor, and each police officer will be donating $30.00 to the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center!
The mission of the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center, NKYCAC is to keep children safe from child abuse and when abuse occurs, to work with our community to bring healing to these children and their families. The Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center works with law enforcement, social services, and prosecutors to ensure children are protected. In 2013 the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center provided services to over 800 children.
Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center is thrilled that the Campbell County Police Department has selected our nonprofit organization to be the beneficiary for this fun event. They are challenging other police departments in our community to put their razor’s down and support the NKYCAC!
And if you are opposed to hair growth and you want to maintain your clean shaven look, consider donating anyway to support the cause. Donate online to: Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center at: www.nkycac.org!
