In April, we pause to recognize National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
More than 2,200 children within the 5th Judicial Circuit (which includes Marion, Lake, Sumter, Citrus and Hernando counties) are being served by the Guardian Ad Litem program, yet many are unaware of their plight.
National statistics show a child abuse report is made every ten seconds, with nearly fifty percent of these reports resulting in an investigation.
