“This is not an issue of gender. This is an issue of humanity. While statistics indicate that 1 in 5 boys & 1 in 3 girls are sexually victimized before the age of 16 in Canada, in my opinion 1 in3 children are victims of sexual violence. Child predators are not gender specific, however they are specific to the vunerability of children.”
Men of Hope have assisted in raising much needed funds for agencies/organizations :
Sexual Assault Centre for Quinte & District – Counselling and Advocacy for Victims of Sexual Assault Since 1991. For nearly two decades, the Sexual Assault Centre for Quinte & District has been providing counselling and advocacy services to both men and women in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties who have been victims of sexual assault.
