Flattening the Curve has a cost for families and children!
All the factors that often lead to child abuse and neglect have increased sharply. With 80% of child abusers living in the child’s home, the stress of Covid and quarantine orders have placed children in harms way with little to no outlet.
- Domestic violence up 20%
- Hospitalizations for severe child abuse up 50%
- 18% increase in family violence calls in San Antonio
- 1,000 % increase in calls to mental health hotline
This combined with a decrease in mandatory reporters (teachers, coaches, extended family) able to see the signs of abuse and step in to help. Our Community, Our Call…everyone can do something!
