Programs: The Male Abuse Awareness Week Awareness Campaign & the Male Abuse Awareness Website
Male Abuse Awareness Week is an awareness campaign held every year from Dec 1st through 8th and the website is the extension of that program. It is a program dedicated to the special needs of young boys and men who have been abused, in an attempt to stop these young males from growing up to abuse others and repeat the cycle of abuse.

A Thriving Volunteer Program to help Abuse Victims
Most therapists suggest that victims and survivors of abuse, “Do something for their cause.” Why? Because it makes them feel better about their own situation when helping others. We supplement counseling with an active Volunteer Program that gives these special individuals a vehicle to do something good for their cause, in the safety of their own homes.

Mission:
Our Mission
To prevent the cycle of child abuse and crime through awareness, education and breaking the taboo about the imperative need for young males who were childhood victims of abuse to seek help.
Results:
Giving abused males a voice is helping. We have all seen the evidence that males are now more comfortable than ever to speak out about being victims of child abuse. Fortunately, when celebrities speak out, it gives courage to others. This the last 2 years actor/comedian Darrell Hammond came forward and gave his testimony of child sexual abuse. Michael Reagan (Ronald Reagan’s son), a survivor of child sexual abuse, resurfaced as a contributor to many news outlets regarding the high-profile Jerry Sandusky case at Pennsylvania State University, a case where our cause received wide-spread media attention and an astonishing number of victims came forward to testify against their abuser.

The stigma of being a sexually or even physically abused male no longer holds as much power over victims as it did in the past. More men are coming forward and this cause is having a legal and cultural impact as well. In 2013 actress Emma Roberts was arrested for Domestic Violence against her boyfriend Evan Peters and the US Defense Department performed an anonymous sexual abuse survey of service men and women that stated the victims of sex assaults in military are mostly men. However, breaking the taboo of silence for these guys remains a challenge. According to experts in the field, 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before his 16th birthday; millions more will be the victims of physical, emotional abuse and neglect.
