Thanks to supporters like YOU, Kidpower can help families cope with abuse, domestic violence, and other life situations that put them at greater risk!

“As a child, I was harmed by someone our family knew and trusted. Kidpower skills for my parents and myself would have spared us so much suffering! Kidpower training taught me how to recognize unsafe situations and pass these vital skills on to my children and other families. It heals my heart to now know how to protect my own children and how to help all kids to be safe. I cannot change the past – but I can change their future.
– Becca, new mother and waitress

Right now, we have the power to stop much of tomorrow’s bullying, violence, and abuse. Those who suffered harm as children often understand most deeply what a difference protective action can make. Please make your year-end gift to Kidpower today!
