Description of Resource

As a nation we are experiencing a new wave of immigration from people in many different countries. And many of these immigrants and refugees are children. They come to a nation and culture which is markedly different and where they face unique and difficult risks. Many of these children come from cultures in which there may be a reluctance to seek help from authorities and where problems are addressed within the family. Thus many of these children may lack the knowledge or tools to recognize or cope with people who prey on children or target children for sexual exploitation or victimization. Thus it is vital that we reach out to offer information and assistance. The child safety and protection information included in this booklet is presented in 30 different languages.
