Costs for Child Abuse Victims Soaring

A new report released by the Children's Trust Fund of Oregon has disheartening news for Oregon victims of child abuse. Thousands of kids and their parents aren't getting the guidance they need to reduce abuse because of limited funding for programs proven to work. Senator Chuck Thomsen says the costs of helping a child abuse victim is skyrocketing – costing the state over $210,000 in their lifetime.  The report recommends increasing funding for prevention programs aimed to heal children and families and keep kids from entering state care or the justice center later in life.
