Unfortunately, sexual abuse continues to be a prevalent problem in both the U.S. and in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Each year, thousands of children are victimized by predators across the nation.

These predators work for respected institutions such as daycare facilities, schools, universities, churches, camps, and sports leagues. When institutions fail to protect the children entrusted to them from abuse, both they and the perpetrators should be held accountable.
