Building Hope Today recognizes the importance of partnerships that are needed in the work against child sexual abuse. It is not just organizations that work directly with children that can make a difference, it can be any organization. Every person matters in building hope-filled tomorrows for children, families and our communities. For that reason, Building Hope Today wants to extend a very sincere thank you to our affiliates that are working with us to make our efforts possible and to expand our reach in protecting more children and lifting up survivors. Our affiliates give valued time and help by offering administrative, accounting, legal representation and web support. We cannot say enough about their generous works in allowing us to further our charter.
The scope of the impact of child sexual abuse in our communities is a dire issue. Research shows that 1 out of 4 girls and 1 out of 6 boys are abused by the time they turn 18, it will take everyone working together to make a difference. Building Hope Today understands this challenge and asks that the community helps in efforts wherever possible. The organizations that have joined hands with us in building our foundation and setting up our structure for successful efforts and vitality. Child sexual abuse is not an issue that can be managed by just one group or one organization, it will take the involvement of entire communities. Building Hope Today is graced with contributions and participation by our affiliates. If you or your organization would like to contribute in some way, your help is asked for and welcomed with open arms. Together, we can make a difference. For one child at a time, we will change futures and build hope-filled tomorrows for generations to come.
