The Department of Health and Human Services Releases 2000 Child Abuse Report Data

Cases of child abuse and neglect rose in 2000 for the first time in seven years, according to data released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on April 19, 2002. The annual report on child maltreatment in the United States identified nearly 900,000 children victimized.

According to the information presented by HHS, confirmed maltreatment cases peaked in 1993, with 15.3 per 1,000 children. The rate fell for six straight years, hitting 11.8 per thousand in 1999. In 2000, there were 12.2 cases per thousand, or a total of about 879,000, out of about 3 million referrals for suspected maltreatment. Wade Horn, HHS assistant secretary for children and families, was reported as saying that the number is too high, whether or not the increase suggests a new trend. "Behind these statistics are real children who are suffering real physical and emotional pain,'' Horn said in a statement. "We are working hard to reduce these numbers, and we must rededicate ourselves to successful prevention efforts."

About 1,200 children died of abuse or neglect in 2000, a small increase from 1999 that HHS officials believe is due to improved reporting, according to the AP release.

Of those child abuse and neglect reports that were confirmed, 62 percent suffered neglect, 19 percent were physically abused, 10 percent were sexually abused, and 8 percent were psychologically maltreated. Consistent with previous years, 84 percent of victims were abused by a parent.


Please help us put an end to this. Those that know about abuse going on and choose not to get involved are a part of the problem. Instead be a part of the solution. Children can't protect themselves... it's up to us who care to protect them. If you suspect a child is being abused please call your local child protective agency. It is anonymous. You just might save a child's life. Thank You for your support in our fight to protect our children.

A Childs 10 Commandments for Parents

2002 6th Annual SingleRose.com Angel Assistance Program - In previous years, the program was a great success in providing gifts for single-mom families in need. If you can afford to help a family in need then you can become an Angel and adopt a family for this Christmas Holiday and buy gifts for the family who might not otherwise have a Christmas. If you are a single mom and times are tough then this program can help provide a Christmas for your family.

The completely online process makes it super-easy to apply for assistance, view recipient information, and most importantly BE AN ANGEL! Together we can make Christmas a joy for all. If you can't afford to adopt a family by yourself consider joining forces with friends or family to adopt a family in need. Believe me when I say the feeling of doing good will last far longer than the presents themselves.

Victims by Chance... Survivors by Choice - This is a great site dealing with domestic violence. If you have been or are currently a victim of domestic violence you need to see this site. I list it here because children are also victims of domestic violence. Even if a child is not abused (although this is not usually the case) they are emotionally crippled by witnessing violence against their parent.
