Preventing Child Abuse

The YMCA understands that it is our job as a community organization to inform, educate and protect our staff and our community about the dangers of child abuse and neglect.  This guide seeks to equip parents, or really anyone in our community, to be informed about child abuse prevention and how to protect their children from abuse.
