Child abuse and neglect affects everyone. We cannot change what has happened, but with your support we can change what will - by speaking up, and standing up, together.
For decades, child abuse and neglect has been perceived as social and legal problems, but research and professionals tell us it is a health, mental health and public health problem that can be treated. COVID-19 has clearly added to the problem as many children have lost their connections and relationships to those who can help, report, and support them. And sadly, in our world, children’s voices often go unheard until it is too late.
EndCAN’s mission is to end child abuse and neglect in our lifetime. And the aim of our Walk Together Columbus is to build a community of healing, hope, and possibility.

This is donation is made in "memory of" Bonnie Norman. An exceptional hero who stepped forward with true courage New Year’s Eve night 1978. She acted quickly, swiftly, and courageously. She made the choice to save her children. Healing after abuse is incredibly hard and it's a pilgrimage, yet it is so much easier when one person decides to be an exceptional hero. And that was my mom and for that I am grateful!
