For 135 years, Family & Children’s Place has led efforts in Louisville and Southern Indiana to prevent and stop child abuse, violence, exploitation, and neglect, and to help child victims and families fully recover and heal.
But child abuse is an epidemic on the rise, with five children dying every day from abuse and neglect. According to the Kentucky Cabinet for Helth and Family Services, 134 Kentucky children died or nearly died – 17 in Jefferson County – from suspected abuse or neglect in 2017. In Indiana, 59 children died from abuse or neglect in 2016. *Data provided by PCAK.
