Kid-Safe Communities is committed to:

1.  Providing educational resources to families  
     and communities to facilitate creating a safe,
     and family-friendly environment for children
      to grow and develop.
2.  Exposing the tactics used by predators who
      would seek to harm children
3.  Working with law enforcement, churches,  
      schools, business leaders, and government
      leadership to help create model  “kid-safe”
      communities.
Our Mission:
Children deserve to grow up in a community free of dangers posed by predators who seek pleasure and gratification at the expense of a child. Sadly, that’s not the case.

Even small-town America is not immune to the ploys of the predator.  The epidemic of sexual assaults is plaguing our society day.
At any given time, there are more than 3 million anonymous users in Internet chat rooms.  You don’t have to be there long before you’re asked, “A-S-L” (Age, Sex, Location).

Predators often go to great lengths to disguise their intent, posing as other children to gain the trust of an unsuspecting child before setting up a meeting.
Search for Predators in Your Community:
Statistics:
 •  1 in 5 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be molested before
    their 18th birthday.

 •  90% of sexual assaults against children are
    committed by someone the victim knew.

 •  The typical sexual predator will assault 117 times
    before being caught.

 •  The re-arrest rate for convicted child molesters is
    52%

 •  In 80% of all non-family abductions, the first
     contact occurs within a quarter mile of the
     child’s home.

  •  A child is reported missing every 40 seconds, and
   one in four of these are abducted and molested.

Bullies also pose a real threat to many children, and not just in the “big” cities.  Some children who are abused or bullied at home take their frustrations out on others in an effort to feel better about themselves or to release pent up emotions of anger and resentment.
Other kids simply bully as a means to gain attention or enjoy asserting a feeling of superiority over another child.   Still others find pleasure in inflicting pain or suffering on another child.

Whatever the reason, No child deserves to be bullied, either by an adult or another child and need to learn how  to defuse bully threats, or to respond if a threat escalates to violence.
