Behind every statistic on child abuse, there is a child.

It’s easy to feel hopeless when faced with the statistics of child abuse. In the U.S., each year more than 600,000 children are abused. In Pennsylvania, there were 58 child-abuse fatalities and 136 near fatalities in 2021.  In Erie County, nearly 300 children are referred to the CAC each year; over the last four years, about 62% of children referred to the CAC were possible victims of sexual abuse.

But, with the support of generous community members, the CAC is here to help the children.
