Support of a loved one can make a big difference in the life of a child abuse victim. Begin the healing with those three words. Less than 3% of children lie about being a victim of child sexual abuse.
Kids’ Space has a Darkness to Light facilitator on staff! Child sexual abuse is too common, we can’t afford to ignore it.
Kids’ Space has been growing over the past few years in order to meet the needs of more children in our community. In 2011 Kids’ space provided services to approximately 300 child abuse victims. In 2016 Kids’ Space provided services to 840 child abuse victims. We’ve introduced new services based off community need, such as Drug Endangered Children’s Services, “Play it Safe” Children’s Prevention Education and Internet Crimes Against Children. We now have 6 full time employees and co-locate with Law Enforcement from the Muskogee Police Department, two Trauma Focused Therapists and Indian Child Welfare.
Write your number on your child’s arm next time you’re in a crowded waterpark, then cover it with liquid band-aid. If they get lost they can show the number to a waterpark employee.
Looking for something to do this summer? Call our office and ask about our volunteer opportunities for the summer! We will put you to work!
We provide prevention classes for children as well as adults! Call our office to request a facilitator!
The advocates at Kids’ Space have given me the strength and courage I need to help my daughter and I get through this.
They really care about my son. He feels like he can be himself when he’s at Kids’ Space.
They helped me understand I’m not the only one. I am most grateful they helped my mom deal with my abuse. She was so sad. Now we are both getting better everyday.
My little girl enjoys all the bright colors and the toys at Kids’ Space, I think the environment helps to make my daughter feel comfortable.
It’s hard to trust anyone after something like this happens to your child. I trust my advocate at Kids’ Space though and that helps SO much.
