All forms of physical and/or emotional ill-treatment, sexual abuse, neglect or negligent treatment or commercial or other exploitation, resulting in actual or potential harm to an individual’s health, survival, development or dignity are incompatible with the social norms we strive to live by.  One in five women in the United States experienced completed or attempted rape during their lifetime. Nearly a quarter (24.8%) of men in the U.S. experienced some form of contact sexual violence in their lifetime. Approximately 2 million children received prevention services in 2020 and approximately 1.2 million children received post response services (such as family preservation, family support, or foster care) because of needs discovered during an investigation or alternative response.
