On December 8th and 9th YMCA CEOs, Darkness to Light, and The Redwoods Group Foundation came together to discuss child sexual abuse prevention. The Partnering in Prevention Steering committee was originally formed in August of this year, and the group continues to meet on a quarterly basis to further prevention efforts among YMCAs and their communities. During the meeting community leaders partnering with The Hockomock YMCA shared why this prevention initiative is so important. As one community member said, “As soon as I understood the impact of child sexual abuse, I started to feel overwhelmed. Then the cavalry came, and I had a solution.” There was a lot of enthusiasm and energy in the room around this important work.
