A pledge from the founder, Priscilla Monarez
Determined to ensure that no child should suffer what I and millions of others have suffered and that all childrens’ voices are heard, I founded this organization in the Winter of 2013.
Having been a victim of child sexual abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault, I vowed to do my part to protect children everywhere from the horrors of child abuse and neglect in all of its forms and to break the cycle of abuse and destruction. I believe that every child has a right to grow up free from the shadow of abuse and that the responsibility to protect our children rests solely in the hands of the adults in their lives, as well as with the community. As adults (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors, etc.) and members of the community we must all remain vigilant and dedicate no less than the best of ourselves to that purpose.
There is a great need raise much needed awareness on these issues and the need for evidence-based prevention programs to make a difference.
Our nonprofit is 100% volunteer run by survivor-volunteers. We believe in having survivors as leaders within the organization to ensure that programs and services align with the needs of victims/survivors.
No child should ever feel unloved or alone, nor should any child ever live in fear.
Together we CAN and will make a difference!
