Do you have a question about JRI services?
JRI's River Run Academy at Susan Wayne Center for Excellence Collaborates with the Children's Advocacy Center of Windham County
Did you know that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually assaulted before the age of 18? For 90% of sexually abused children, the perpetrator is someone the child knows and trusts. That means that in a classroom of 28 students, about six or seven students have been the victims of sexual abuse.
When children make reports to adults, the first response is critical, and can be the difference between feeling believed and supported, and being shamed or embarrassed, or even recanting true information.
