Different Missions, Shared Vision
April 15, 2021
Children’s Cove works to raise awareness about the issues related to crimes against children. Fortunately, we are joined by hundreds of other professionals across the Cape & Islands who also serve the vulnerable in our community. The last year of remote schooling has posed a threat to children who are at risk at home, because they are not surrounded by safe adults and mandated reporters. Instances of domestic and sexual violence, as well as child abuse, exploitation and online exploitation have magnified with isolation from social and community connections. During Child Abuse Prevention Month and Sexual Assault Awareness Month, it is essential to raise visibility of the services available to our community.
If you are aware of any child or person in an unsafe situation, there is a community of professionals who have made it their mission to help. Please reach out. Everyone should live in a community free of abuse.
