It's all about the parents who exchange looks when they're eating s'mores that have been cooked in a hot car to demonstrate the dangers of leaving a child alone in a hot car.
It's all about the newborn's Mom who quietly realizes after reading our rack card about Safe Sleeping with infants that she should get a crib or a bassinet for her 3 week old infant instead of putting the baby to sleep in the bed between her and her husband.
It's all about the phone calls late at night from a father who has a question about a child being left with someone who had abused him when he was little.
Prevent Child Abuse Gaston provides training, education and information about all these issues. And, the community trusts us. We're here because we care, not because we are drawing a paycheck. We are authorized Facilitators of Stewards of Children. Many of us have backgrounds of working in child welfare and we participate in several collaborative committees across the county.
For every $10.00 donated we can provide a rack card display to an agency with information on the Safe Surrender Law, Safe Sleeping for Infants, Safe Cars, Safe Water Supervision, Anti-Bullying for Young Children, Child Sexual Abuse Prevention and Gun Safety.
For every $100.00 donated we can train 5 parents in Stewards of Children, a nationally recognized, evidence based training on child abuse prevention.
For every $500.00 donated we can provide 20 Meet Me on the Playground for Elementary School Age Children anti-bullying kits for teachers.
For every $1000.00 donated we can train 68 parents in child abuse prevention including teaching them how to talk to their children about child sexual abuse, healthy touches, sexual exploitation online and human sex trafficking.
Every dollar donated to our Go Fund Me campaign will be used to protect children right here in Gaston County. Please give today!
