Through your strength and compassion you can help us break the cycle of child abuse.
Children are dying, and you can help prevent it. 8% of all child deaths are the result of maltreatment. Of those, 33% were children under the age of 4. Accidental maltreatment, while parents are drug or alcohol abusers, accounts for 19%, while homicide – blunt force trauma, medical conditions and firearm injury – is the leading causes of maltreatment deaths at 49%.
In 60% of these deaths the biological mother is the perpetrator, and in 27% it is the biological father.
These parents need our help.

While there’s no academic agreement about how to measure “ready to learn,” researchers and teachers agree that what happens at home makes a big difference, especially in early years.
According to one study, children of professionals hear 30 million more words by the age of four than children in homes receiving welfare.

Parents were asked “Before starting this program, how many times per week did you read to your child?” and “Right now, how many times per week do you read to your child?”
