More than 1 million children are victims of child abuse and neglect each year. Yet, many of these victims don't receive the help they need because their abuse or neglect isn't reported to the proper authorities to intervene or investigate. These abused and neglected children span all ages, races, religions and socio-economic backgrounds. Child abuse or neglect includes actions or omissions that result in imminent threat of serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or sexual exploitation, or death of a child under age 18 by a parent or other caregiver.
