April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is set aside to recommit ourselves to ending the vicious cycle of abuse, and to stand up for every child that needs a VOICE! Citizens are encouraged to start wearing blue ribbons in support of National Child Abuse Prevention Month during April.CASA of Titus, Camp and Morris Counties is partnering with Department of Family Protective Services, Ounce of Prevention and Morris County Child Welfare Board to bring attention to Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The statistics for the State of Texas are startling:

  • Today, 175 Texas children will be victims of abuse.
  • 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. With 7.4 million children residing in Texas, this would equal 740,000 child victims of abuse.
  • The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study demonstrates…

Children who have experienced trauma are more likely to engage in early initiation of smoking, sexual activity, illicit drug use, and suicide.

Children with multiple traumas have significantly higher rates of heart disease, chronic pulmonary lung disease, hepatitis, depression, and diabetes.

  • According to the National Institute of Justice, abused and neglected children are…

59% more likely to be arrested for juvenile crime.

28% more likely to be arrested as an adult.

  • The National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice estimates 93% of youth in detention reported exposure to previous “adverse” events, including physical and sexual abuse.  https://www.cactx.org/child-abuse-in-texas

CASA of Titus, Camp, and Morris Counties is a non-profit volunteer based organization and served 116 Children for fisical year September 1, 2021 through August 31, 2022.  The CASA programs across Texas works with the Department of Family and Protective Services to ensure that all children are safe.  The children that are placed in the foster care system, due to abuse or neglect, must have someone to speak up for them so they can have a safe, permanent and nurturing environment that children need to thrive. CASA programs recruit, train and support everyday members of the community to SPEAK UP for the best interests of children in court to ensure that they are placed into loving, permanent homes as quickly as possible. These extraordinary people are called Court Appointed Special Advocates “CASA” Volunteers.”

In a time when so many are focusing on the problems, CASA of Titus, Camp and Morris Counties is collaborating with other stakeholders like Ounce of Prevention, Morris County Child Welfare Board and The Department of Family Protective Services and contributing to the solution.
