The efforts of Youth Heartline have benefited children in Taos, Colfax and Union Counties. Court Appointed Special Advocates have been zealously speaking on behalf of abused children before District Court Judges Sam Sanchez and John Paternoster, providing them with unvarnished updates as to the efforts of state agencies and parents to reunify with their children.
The Child Personal Safety Project is still the best defense against child sexual abuse. By empowering the potential victims of such abuse, we can help put a stop to the abuse before it occurs. As I have said many times before, if an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, then the Child Personal Safety Project should bring a sixteen-to-one return to our investment.
The trauma of abuse can haunt a child for the rest of their life. The Family Empowerment Program provides therapy to address the harm abused and neglected children and their families suffer. Such efforts seek to give these unfortunate victims the tools to heal the harm and foster an environment where such abuse will not happen again. .
Child abuse and neglect are cruel realities of our society. For the poor and dispossessed of our communities, the services provided by Youth Heartline are often the only services available. The treatment and therapy provided to abused and neglected children and their families are done so at no cost to the child’s family. No abused child is ever denied services by Youth Heartline. Such help would be impossible without your support.
