together, we can stop child abuse in massachusetts


The Children’s Trust is on a mission to stop child abuse in Massachusetts. One in 34 children was confirmed as abused or neglected in the Commonwealth last year. That's one confirmed case every 15 minutes!

According to a CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) estimate, the total lifetime cost for one year of confirmed cases of child abuse and neglect in Massachusetts equals over $8.4 billion.

The good news is that ending child abuse is possible. By supporting the Children's Trust, you can change the lives of children in your town and across Massachusetts. Donate now and your donation will be matched! Together, we can stop child abuse and neglect.
