PASSAGES SUMMER ABUSE STATISTICS

Summer is a carefree time of the year. Many teenagers spend their summer months having a blast with friends. However, there can be a dark side to these carefree feelings. 1 in 5 women will be raped in her lifetime, and a third of those were assaulted between the ages of 11-17.

How can we keep our teens safe this summer? For more information about volunteer opportunities, prevention, or free services, contact PASSAGES, Inc.
