COVID-19 has greatly increased the urgency of our work advocating on behalf of Minnesota’s most vulnerable children: those who have been neglected and abused. Please help us meet our $3,500 goal during this continued epidemic crisis so children do not have to suffer alone!
Child abuse invariably increases during times of financial stress, yet reports of maltreatment are down by 50%. This is because children are isolated with their abusers, hidden from the schools and community programs that normally see and report maltreatment. It is expected that reports of abuse and neglect will increase dramatically once children become visible again to the community. We are working with state officials to address this need. Safe Passage for Children of Minnesota needs your support now more than ever to protect these children.
