Why we do it

Child abuse occurs with alarming frequency in New York City. One in three children experiences abuse by the time he or she is 18 years old and most often the perpetrator is someone the victim knows and trusts.

The JC supports the NYCC and believes we can make a real difference in the lives of abused children and their families.

The NYCC is a privately funded, non-profit organization providing evaluations and therapy services to victims of child abuse and their families. By cooperating with New York’s social services and law enforcement agencies, NYCC helps investigations and prosecutions proceed more effectively with less trauma to children. NYCC also trains professionals who work with children to recognize and respond to the signs and symptoms of abuse and teaches children, parents and the public how to prevent abuse from occurring. All services are provided free of charge
