FACE-IT MOVEMENT: KOSAIR CHARITIES
Mission, history of organization:
Kosair Charities’ mission is to protect the health and well-being of children in Kentucky and Southern Indiana by providing financial support for clinical services, research, pediatric healthcare education, and child advocacy.
Problem being addressed:
Kosair Charities along with 20 other children’s agencies launched a movement called “Face It” to help end Child Abuse in Kentucky and Southern Indiana by 2013. Child abuse has a thousand faces. The face of the parent who knows it and knows it won’t stop until they speak out. The face of the teacher who suspects it and says so. The face of the coach who knows the difference between tough love and a hurting child. The face of the pastor who chooses to be a guardian angel. The face of the neighbor who hears it and raises their voice against it.
