The Children’s Bureau understands how important it is for our community to be educated on child abuse in the Los Angeles & surrounding Southern California area. We put together a list of statistics pertaining to child abuse in order to help shed light on the issues our community faces. Help spread awareness, and visit the affiliate links below for further information.
