Child Sex Abuse Prevention and Protection Center


Child sexual abuse harms millions every year. Victims and their families suffer silently, often with lifelong after-effects. Help prevent this. We can Stop It Now!

Real Life

"Stop It Now! gives me hope for a world where families like mine can deal with our problems effectively and compassionately.

I was a victim of child sexual abuse, and the real tragedy for me was that the abuser was my father who was loved dearly by the whole family, including me. The only choices I felt I had were to keep the silence or cause disaster for us all.

Stop It Now! offers more options for dealing with the heartbreaking fact that most people who abuse are not monsters, but people in our own families and communities who we love. Stop It Now! offers us all the freedom to break through the secrecy and shame that surrounds this issue."
