Jacksonville Beach, Florida (PRWEB) June 22, 2012
Don Dymer, president and CEO of SingleSource Services Corporation, background screening company and Stacy Pendarvis, MSW, MA, a long time consultant who works with Darkness to Light and the Monique Burr Foundation For Children hope to take their message global:, "Educated, proactive adults have the ability to stop child sexual abuse from happening. Each year in the U.S. 500,000 babies will be born who will be sexually abused by the time they turn 18 and adults are the only people who can protect children from that sexual abuse.¹”
In the shadow of one of the most publicized cases of child sexual abuse, two dedicated professionals in Jacksonville Beach, Florida are trying desperately to put a stop to the sexual abuse of children by those entrusted with their care by empowering both adults and children with important information and safety programs they can implement now to make tomorrow safer.
“Soon over 10 million children will be heading off to overnight summer camps. While millions others will attend day camps at churches, schools, boy and girls clubs and other facilities. For most children, the experience will provide them with fun filled memories on “how I spent my summer vacation.” For others, the experience will leave them emotionally traumatized, their lives changed forever because they will become victims of child sexual abuse.” notes Pendarvis.
“Adults have the power to rewrite this history,” explains Pendarvis, “but they need to recognize this can happen to my child.” Dymer agrees, “Even with the trial against Sandusky all over the news, parents will throw caution to the wind and send their children to summer camps where staffers and volunteers haven’t been properly screened and hope for the best.”
