Helps Families Who Are Falsely
Of Child Abuse Or Neglect!
Child Abuse is one of the worst crimes that can be committed against another
human being. The mere thought of a defenseless child being abused
or neglected offends anyone who values children and family life.
In Missouri, however, child protection advocates have created a new family
tragedy. In their zeal to combat child abuse and neglect, child protection
advocates created a system that repeatedly ignores the truth and violates
the constitutional rights of the accused. In doing so, they have
created a new class of victims - Victims Of Child Abuse Laws!
VOCAL Helps Familes Who Are Falsely Accused Of Child Abuse Or Neglect!
Victims Of Child Abuse Laws was founded in the early 1980's as a result
of a false charge of child abuse in a day care center in Minneapolis.
The organization has grown nationwide and has chapters and contact persons
in 49 states.
VOCAL Of Missouri was formed in 1986 and has served over 2,800 Missouri
families. VOCAL is here to help you in your family's time of need.
