California families the heart of the state certainly makes this state, one of the most beautiful states in the nation. It has so much to offer, from its gorgeous beaches to its breathtaking mountains. Hollywood can provide endless entertainment. The fertile soil together with the sunshine yields an abundance of fruits and vegetables for the benefit of people throughout the nation. While this is a great benefit to the nation, child abuse happening in the privacy of homes or elsewhere within the state is a horrible situation occurring at alarming rates in each State of this Nation. Hope For Children Foundation’ board of directors believe finding support for those affected by abuse is necessary. Here is information where victims and/or their families of all races, age, economic standing, religion, marital status, national origin, disability, pregnancy, medical condition, sexual orientation, and sex, may obtain information to find assistance and can work at establishing an abuse free life.

Prevent Child Abuse

Exploiters and pimps target vulnerable youth, many of these children have histories of abuse and neglect. The numerous children who run away from home frequently fall prey to the lure of love and security offered to them by perpetrators of child abuse. These type of child abusers labeled as exploiters and pimps, falsely promise innocent children security, only for the child to experience repeated abuse. Ultimately the child is manipulated as they develop a strong sense of loyalty to the exploiter or pimp, then the intense fear of violence often blinds the child from seeing themselves as a victim which usually prevents the child victim from seeking help.
