In the first three months of this year Delaware County and it's surrounding counties had
494 substantiated cases of child neglect.
Research tells us that each of these children who are neglected are 9x more likely to become involved in criminal activity.
We also know that approximately 1/3 of these children will grow up to repeat the cycle of neglect with their own children.
These are sobering numbers that fuel in us the passion for Treefort. The need is real, 494 cases of real.
