In our world today we are faced with appalling statistics of child sexual abuse. “Darkness to Light” reports that 1 in 10 children will be molested before their 18th birthday, and around 400,000 babies born in the US this year will become victims. We believe there is a better way. We don’t need to hide our heads in the sand and stand helplessly by while children suffer abuse.
A Better Way exists as a Christian organization that equips trusted adults in children’s lives with the tools to recognize and respond to potential and actual child sexual abuse.
Among other things, this includes teaching to help prevent child sexual abuse by promoting best safety practices in homes, churches and schools. We serve as a point of connection to resources that will assist in this important calling.
At A Better Way, we strongly believe that knowledgeable and caring support is critical in preventing or healing from childhood sexual abuse. We actively seek to network with social workers, counselors, law enforcement officers and others who can assist those who reach out to A Better Way for information and help.
Additionally, A Better Way is called to support the professionals whose job it is to investigate any suspected cases of sexual abuse.
