No person deserves to be abused, least of all children. At the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center, we believe that it is the responsiblity of adults to protect children and enable them to grow up in a healthy, safe world, free from harm.
Parents facing the possibility that their children have been intentionally hurt can feel angry, helpless, frustrated, and defeated by the system. You may have questions about whether your child's experience constitutes abuse, and how to help them. You can find more information using the links on the left.
Don't give up.
You are not alone.
