Lauren’s Kids is based in South Florida and educates adults and children about sexual abuse prevention through in-school curricula, awareness campaigns and speaking engagements around the country and the world. Our mission is to prevent sexual abuse through education and awareness, and to help survivors heal with guidance and support.
There are predators who walk among us. They are Black and white, male and female, young and old, rich and poor. They are our neighbors and friends, business leaders and community workers. Predation and exploitation happens every single day, hidden in plain sight.
Child sexual abuse is a silent epidemic. It occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic and cultural lines, within all religions and at all levels of education. When sexual abuse does occur, 75% of child victims do not disclose within a year – 45% keep their abuse a secret for at least 5 years, many stay silent for decades, and some never tell.
But 95% of this abuse is preventable through education and awareness – and with guidance and support, victims can heal into thriving survivors. Together, we can shine light into dark places.
