The Impact of Child Abuse Last a Lifetime
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), like child abuse, have a lifelong impact on survivors. These traumatic experiences are often linked to chronic health problems, mental illness, and substance abuse in children and adults. The best practice and evidence-based response to child abuse that Children’s Advocacy Centers provide can help to reduce the impact of child abuse by providing victim-centered services and family-centered treatments designed to provide healing, justice, and trust for children and families who have been impacted by child abuse. Your help today can help the tomorrow for the over 11,000 children and families that South Carolina Children’s Advocacy Centers provide services for each year.
