Hundreds of children are abused each year in Ingham County. When a child has the strength to share those experiences against all odds, the community should stand together and give those children the resources to heal, ﬁnd empowerment, and thrive. The voice of each child identifies and removes child predators from our community so that they cannot victimize more children.
1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused by the age of 18. Only 1 in 10 children will tell. Small Talk has served 721 children since it opened in October of 2011.
