Thank you for joining us at the
2nd Annual Brent A. Rosenberg Lace UP to End Child Abuse 5K
and 1.5 mile Family Fun Walk!
Together we raised over $70,000 for Maryland’s families!
Watch the video recap below:
The Family Tree leads Maryland in preventing child abuse, connects caring communities, and builds strong families to improve society for generations. In Maryland, a child is reported abused or neglected every 10 minutes. For every reported case of abuse, two go unreported. Child abuse and neglect cost Maryland taxpayers $1.5 billion each year. Yet for every $1 invested in our cause of prevention, it is estimated that the state saves $15 on treating its long-term effects. Last year, we reached over 30,000 people with a strong complement of programs and services including parenting classes, workshops, home visiting programs, support groups, a childcare-respite program, child behavioral health consultation services, a telephone-based helpline, web-based chatline community education, technical assistance, and support for professionals and childcare providers.
