Child abuse has significant effects on us all. Whether it’s you, or someone you know, you are affected. Abuse knows no socio-economic boundaries; no gender or age is left unaffected. Child abuse is highly under-reported in our society, whether it be physical, sexual or emotional.
There are many struggles victims of abuse face including: anxiety, post-traumatic-stress, low self-esteem, trouble concentrating, difficulties in school, substance abuse and re-victimization. All of these issues not only contribute to a breakdown in our communities, but also can tear apart families and significantly impact the children who have been victimized. With treatment these children are given hope. A chance … to heal, to understand, to move forward, and to take control of their young lives.
While we may not be able to change the fact that the abuse happened, with your support we can help to restore peace, balance, comfort, harmony, and a sense of safety and security in the lives of those who have experienced abuse.
Radius Child and Youth Services has been helping children and youth and their families who have been affected by abuse and/or neglect for more than 30 years.
With 1-in-3 females and 1-in-5 males experiencing some form of abuse by the time they reach the age of 16, the demand for our services is great. Radius Child & Youth Services cannot do this alone.
Help us to make a difference in a child’s life.
