At TCDG Studios, we love looking at local charities with great purpose and showing them appreciation for the work they do. One such charity is Child Rescue Network.
Child Rescue Network is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization made up of dedicated staff, volunteers, advocates and partners, all committed to protecting children. Our programs are designed by experts to give kids the knowledge and skill sets to help them make the best decisions possible, whether they are dealing with a stranger or a familiar face.
The Mission Statement - Empowering children and families to help prevent child sexual abuse, abductions and victimization through educational programs, community awareness and strategic partnerships.
Some of their programs include Empowerment Not Fear Program, Safety Compass Program, Internet Safety, and Child Safety ID Cards.
Empowerment Not Fear Program - It is our goal to eliminate the message of stranger danger, which is flawed in every aspect. First and foremost is the fact that 93% of victimized children know their abuser! Now we absolutely know the predator in the park scenario does happen, but a child is over 9 times more likely to be assaulted by someone he or she knows and often trusts and even loves.
Human Trafficking is slavery and is the fastest growing crime on the planet. People around the world are being forced, coerced or manipulated to prostitute themselves and work for countless hours in deplorable conditions with no hope of escape.
Child Rescue Network is dedicated to “moving the needle” and dramatically lowering the number of children who are forced to endure these crimes. It can be done!
Make a donation, become a sponsor, volunteer and spread our message by sharing our website and social media posts. Children do not have to be the most victimized segment of our society. Get involved and help us change things.
