You can host a TAKE 25 event right in your own community to help educate children and parents on safety. This program, offered by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, aspires to get communities across America involved and to hopefully prevent abductions.
It was created in honor of National Children’s Day to encourage parents and guardians to take 25 minutes to educate their children about safety topics. The goal is to help children make better decisions in life, set limitations on what they do, and give parents and guardians the tools they need.
Some of the topics covered are Internet, school, out and about, and at home safety. So consider taking a few moments today and read more about Take 25 and consider becoming a volunteer or hosting a program in your own neighborhood.
A new resource, Safe Helpline, is for military service members to report sexual assault. This program allows victims to call, text or use live chat to report abuse.
According to the website:
In addition to providing help online, Safe Helpline is also available by phone. Safe Helpline is available from anywhere, anytime — 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, worldwide: 877-995-5247. The phone number is the same inside the U.S. or via the Defense Switched Network (DSN). When calling from DSN, there are four toll-free area codes (800, 888, 866, and 877) as DSN area codes to enable a direct dialing capability. DSN users can dial US toll-free numbers by simply dialing 94 + the 10-digit toll-free number.
Safe Helpline provides confidential crisis intervention, support and information to members of the Department of Defense (DoD) community who have been sexually assaulted.
You can get live, confidential help anytime, anywhere.
