When the Child Advocacy Centers were established in Rutherford County in 2000 and in Cannon County in 2007, the national statistic was that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. The new national child abuse statistic is 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. We are excited to share with you that everything we are doing to stop child abuse is working in Rutherford and Cannon Counties and across the nation.
