Child sexual abuse can have a catastrophic impact on a victim’s life. The real tragedy is that it robs children of their innocence and without proper support it could lead victims to suffer a wide range of psychological, physical and social problems in varying degrees.
'SCARS’ mission is to reduce the risk of child sexual abuse by raising public awareness and speaking to key decision makers to put policies and procedures in place that best protect our children from the crime of Child Sexual Abuse. We do this through prevention and awareness programs, an adult training program, and we provide resources for healing such as psychiatric care, spiritual support and a list of agencies available to help.
