We, Alliance for Children & Families, Inc. —through direct services, advocacy, education, prevention, intervention, supportive services, and the development and implementation of innovative and productive programming—are committed to empowering children, individuals and families to restore them to lives of stability, self-sufficiency and enhancement. We do this by treating all persons with dignity and respect, while embracing their diversity.
Monthly Feature: RAINN
Every 109 seconds, another person experiences sexual assault. The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network is the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. This month we are highlighting the life changing services they offer, such as victim services, public education, consulting and training, and pushing public policy.
RAINN Day, held on September 15 this year, is the annual day of action to raise awareness and educate students about sexual violence. However, taking action doesn’t last just one day. Events for RAINN Day can last weeks, months, or even the whole year.
