In 2017, more than 22,000 child abuse cases were substantiated, and as experts tell us that less than half of cases are reported—many occurring in children too young to speak for themselves or be noticed at school—we know that number is as much as double. To put that in perspective, 22,000 children would fill almost every seat in Rupp Arena. That’s MORE than the total undergraduate enrollment of the University of Louisville.

If you would like to speak with a counselor or pastor about child abuse, please contact: Pastoral Counselor Jane Myers 893-2201 x230, Rev. Melissa Head or Rev. Dr. Leanne Hadley.
