Stand Up for Our Children Report suspected abuse at (800)-96ABUSE

A report of child abuse is made every ten seconds in the United States. According to a report issued by Childhelp.org, every year more than 3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States involving more than 6 million children (a report can include multiple children). Further, the United States has one of the worst records among industrialized nations – losing on average between four and seven children every day to child abuse and neglect.

In Escambia County alone last year, there were over 7,600 cases of child maltreatment reported. In our own backyard, each year nearly 20 child deaths are investigated annually as a result of suspected abuse.

In 2020, Gulf Coast Kid’s House (GCKH) provided services for over 3,300 children victimized by abuse. Last year, in 97% of the cases seen at GCKH, the alleged perpetrator was a family member or a close friend of the family.
