2018-19 Charity of the Year
At Family Support Line, we believe that:
A proactive approach that offers family support and child sexual abuse prevention education to children, their parents, other professionals, and community members is necessary to stop the abuse from happening in the first place. A coordinated system of investigation, prosecution, and provision of services best serve the child and family. Early intervention and family support are two critical elements in achieving a healthy and full recovery from the trauma of sexual abuse and breaking the cycle of abuse. Services to children and their family members should occur in a safe and trusting environment and by professionals trained to deal with this trauma. Child sexual abuse affects all members of the family, and for this reason all members of the family need treatment and support regardless of their ability to pay for them.
