KARA (Kids At Risk Action) tracks current news about at risk children bringing transparency and  attention to our youngest and most vulnerable  citizens.

This reporting is only sampling of what should be reported –  the great majority of child trauma & abuse is never known.

 

 

American states are struggling to find answers for ending adverse childhood experiences and saving at risk children by reversing the explosive growth of child abuse and neglect.

 

Today, many state ward children are 4th and 5th generation abused children raising their own families without parenting skills and with serious drug, alcohol and mental health issues.

 

If you are a CASA and want to promote awareness and volunteerism in your community, check out KARA’s INVISIBLE CHILDREN CAMPUS program and contact us for more details; info@invisiblechildren.org with INVISIBLE CHILDREN CAMPUS program in the subject line
