OUR MISSION

To provide SUPPORT for victim families and professionals, PREVENTION of child and elder abuse, and JUSTICE for the innocent victims.

What is Shaken Baby Syndrome?

Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) is a form of Abusive Head Trauma (AHT) that occurs when a frustrated caregiver causes blunt force trauma to a child’s head by violently shaking and/or impacting the child with or against an object, usually to stop him/her from crying. This blunt force trauma can cause damage to the brain and often to the eyes.

Our Impact

We promote a multidisciplinary team approach in all aspects of our programming areas to meet the needs of our victim’s family members and professionals and prevent abuse.  By working together, we meet the needs of victim family members and professionals, protect children and the elderly, and obtain justice for the innocent victims.
