Humanitarian Group Starts Kids Watch

Local Humanitarian group Advocates United for Humanity Founders are devastated over the death of 9-year-old Anson Stover, a fourth-grader at Robb Elementary, was found deceased in his home. An autopsy revealed he died from unspeakable abuse.

In cases like this, authorities ask if anyone has any information on the case to report it but all too often people fear reporting what they see, hear or suspect in fear of being wrong and held accountable. Filing a report of suspected child abuse in good faith will not get you in trouble and in fact, could save a child’s life. What happens if you see, hear, or suspect child abuse and don’t report it? It would be unbearable to know you could have done something to protect a child or save a child’s life but you did nothing out of fear.

Board of Directors President Donna Kshir said, “I would rather file a report and be wrong a million times than to have one child lose their life.”

Advocates United for Humanity knows it takes a village to raise a child, but it also takes a village to protect one. Their ‘Community Kid Watch’ program is set for launch on December 21, 2020. Together we can stop the violence before another innocent child, like Anson, loses their life.

Lee Roberts, AU4H CEO said, “It takes a village to raise a child is a saying we hear often. What does it mean? It means it takes all of us to care for the children in our communities, to ensure they are safe wherever they are. It means keeping an eye out for suspected harm that may be happening and to report that harm before it is too late.”

The ‘Community Kids Watch’ program objective is to help children in the community feel safe and protected knowing not only their families but friends, neighbors and community are carefully watching over them.  Each person can adopt a neighborhood, apartment complex, building, street, or community block and vow to take a stand to stop child abuse by “watching, listening and reporting” any suspicious or suspected acts of abuse towards a child.

In memory of Anson, the ‘Community Kids Watch’ volunteers will be known as ‘Community Kids Watch Ambassadors.’

You see, people have a tendency to forget very easily, but Anson will never grow up, play sports, get a driver’s license, go to the prom, get married, have children of his own or grow old. His life was stolen by a woman that didn’t know his worth. Children are precious and valuable, all children. They are our future and we as a society need to protect them as the beloved gems they are. Sometimes protecting them is protecting them from the ones who should love them the most. Anson’s death was one hundred percent preventable. His life could have been saved by one phone call. Don’t let Anson’s death be in vain. Take a stand with us and hold people who abuse children accountable. 

This program validates the importance of reporting what you see, hear or suspect.
