Saving Children – Creating Safer Communities

Our History

Since our founding, we have been chasing one ambitious goal: to play our part in ending the child sexual abuse epidemic in our country. And while the crisis is vast, we’re optimistic. We know how to help solve the problem, and we make progress every day thanks to the help of partners and generous supporters. When we work together, every child will grow up, free from sexual abuse, in our lifetime.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

We prevent and reduce childhood sexual abuse.

We equip, care, advocate, and educate community members and multidisciplinary teams on grooming and delayed disclosure 
– the keys to preventing child sexual abuse.

Our work is built on six core values:
Awareness  –  Education  –  Collaboration
Justice  –  Safety  –  Hope

Our story started with Matt: 

Save a Life

What is Grooming &
Delayed Disclosure?

Who Does This Affect?

1 in 4 girls and 1 in 13 boys experience this abuse.

Who Are The Offenders?

93% are abused by someone they know.

Who Will Report?

83% of children will never tell.  They’re all alone.  Of those who do tell, the average age when they share their experience is 52 years old.

How Many Offenders Are Held Accountable?

There’s usually no “hard” physical evidence, no witnesses, no crime scene, and no offender cooperation.  Most people think this means there’s no case.  As a result, only 6% of reported cases end in a criminal conviction, and 94% of reported offenders walk free.

Do Offenders Stop At One?

70% of offenders harm 1-9 children, 20% hurt 10-40 children, and 10% harm more.

Does Training Increase Accountability?

We teach community members and multidisciplinary teams how to look for “soft” evidence that can land a conviction through the 7 stages of grooming and delayed disclosure.  It’s an entirely new way of looking at cases and our techniques secure convictions, 100% of the time.
