April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Child Abuse Prevention Month. Abuse towards women and children often goes either unnoticed, or victims don’t know where to start to seek help. Whether it’s a child or an adult, it can be very scary to make that first step.
There are so many wonderful organizations here in Detroit that can help you. I invite you to tune in this Sunday as I host a very important Street Beat show on abuse. Street Beat airs every Sunday at 11am on the CW50.
If you’re unable to watch here are a couple web sites that can help you or someone you know that is being abused. Visit http://www.carehouse.org http://www.michigan.gov/dhs http://www.turningpointmacomb.org or YWCADetroit.org Together let’s help keep kids safe.
