Speak Out – Summer ’17

Victims Resource Center presents hundreds of Child Safety programs each year to children in pre-school through second grades. These programs empower children to say “No!” to inappropriate touches and to tell an adult if someone tries to touch them in a way that makes them uncomfortable.

To help parents develop skills to prevent abuse, Victims Resource Center is collaborating with the Wilkes-Barre City Health Department to offer Parents in the Know.
