THIS SHOULD NEVER EVER HAPPEN TO A CHILD. One in four girls. One in six boys. And CornerHouse is there to listen and and support the victims of sexual abuse and those that have witnessed a violent event and their families.
The Blue Kids Breakfast this year was held at the Golden Valley Country Club. Approximately 400 business leaders, elected officials, police officers, sheriffs, board members, community members and staff came together to support the work of CornerHouse. The program featured three incredibly strong individuals sharing the stories of their children’s abuse.
- Archelle Georgio shared the very recent story of her daughter’s abuse at a school dance.
- Patty Wetterling shared the story of Jacob’s abduction, abuse and murder.
- Jim George shared the story of his son’s abuse by a prominent neighbor.
They all talked about the abuse’s profound impact on their children and their families.
