Every Child Matters

By Staff | Apr 10, 2019

As with the past couple of Aprils, this month the Wetzel-Tyler Newspapers will publish a column written by Susan Scharf, Executive Director of The Lighthouse Child Advocacy Center.

The CAC staff encounters the most heinous crimes committed against the most vulnerable individuals of our society, mere children. Their work is 24/7; there is no doubt it follows them home.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.

We want to do our part to help, and we hope you will consider the same. Let’s make every month Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Read Scharf’s columns; save them. Be mindful of the signs. Know where to turn if you suspect the unthinkable has happened to a child.

The children the CAC helps have encountered true evil. However, thanks to the Lighthouse, there is hope for a brighter future.
