WE ARE NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER BEFORE
As San Francisco’s economy boomed so did the percentage of low-income families. Although abuse and neglect occur at every economic level, in every neighborhood and zip code, poverty and income disparity dramatically increase the risk of child maltreatment.
Last year more low-income families than ever came to us for support.
Of the clients we served in 2014, 89% were low income or lived in extreme poverty
Of the clients we have served in 2015, 95% were low income or lived in extreme poverty
THE WORK TO END CHILD ABUSE CONTINUES
The San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center supports local families by providing services directly to children and their caregivers, from counseling to weekly community dinners. We support the greater Bay Area through advocacy, community education, and by partnering with governments and nonprofits.
Now, as a society, we must change the landscape for vulnerable families.
