A child is abused or neglected in North Carolina.

In about half of the cases, these children understand abuse before they learn to read.

25-40 children die each year in North Carolina as a result of abuse.

Almost all criminals report having been abused as children.

More than 100,000 children are reported to authorities each year in our state.

85% of the time the perpetrator of child abuse and neglect is a biological parent.

Parents who were abused as children are six times more likely to abuse their own kids.

Abuse and neglect do not discriminate by social, economic, or ethnic background.
