People automatically assume that child abuse occurs at home. This is not always the case. Although statistics show that the majority of perpetrators are parents, there is still a wide group of perpetrators who are other individuals that may be around children in other aspects of their lives.

Sadly, child abuse in Florida occurs anywhere no matter your economic status, religion, race, or age. Child abuse has been known to occur at:

  • Daycare and preschool
  • Church
  • Boy Scouts
  • Girl Scouts
  • YMCA and other community centers
  • School
  • Youth club
  • And more

When parents entrust their children to daycare workers, Boy Scout troop leaders, church group leaders, community organization leaders, and teachers, they expect that those people in such organizations are there for the right reasons; however, sometimes this is not the case. Not all workers at these organizations are bad, but there are some who are.

If your child has suffered sexual abuse, physical abuse, or verbal and mental abuse in Florida, you need to hold that person accountable so that he or she doesn’t hurt any other child.
