Make a difference and protect children and families

Every child has a right to a safe and nurturing childhood. But for many children, sexual abuse is an all-too-common occurrence. In the U.S., one in 10 children is sexually abused – and more than 50% of these cases involve children younger than 12. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Together, we can keep children safe from sexual abuse. We know child sexual abuse is preventable. And we know that responsible adults are in the best position to keep children safe from harm.

Stop It Now! prevents child sexual abuse by giving adults, families, and communities the tools they need to take action and protect children, before they are harmed. Our Helpline and free resources equip adults to create safety plans, prepare for difficult conversations, and identify steps to take to keep children safe and healthy.

All of our services are free-of-charge. We rely on donations from individuals to sustain our nationwide services. Thank you for supporting our vital work!
