Kalamazoo County has a crisis.

Every day in Kalamazoo County, an average 13 new cases of child abuse and neglect are reported. One fourth of those cases demand immediate intervention. Many more cases are never reported. Abuse has lasting impacts:

  • Nearly 80% of victims develop psychiatric disorders such as depression, eating disorders and PTSD.
  • Child abuse survivors are almost four times more likely to become drug addicts or alcoholics.
  • 36% of women and 14% of men in prison were abused as children.
