The CSI Effect...
In the field of child sexual abuse, we constantly battle many societal myths and stereotypes. Our job at LifeHouse is not only to be there for the child who is in crisis, but also to help educate the public to understand what happens when a child is abused, and that your favorite police crime TV show is not reality.

We hear: "Well the offender was most likely abused when he was young, so he probably couldn't help it." 
Did you know? Research shows us that it could be as low at 25-30% of child sex offenders who were actually abused themselves as children. If they had been abused as a child or not, it is never okay to abuse a child.
We hear: "She didn't tell on him right away, she must have liked it."
Did you know? It is very normal for a child who is being abused to not tell anyone right away.  The myriad of emotions for a child or teen who is experiencing abuse can be overwhelming. The perpetrator has usually already been grooming that child to lessen the chance of her disclosing, though coercion, blame or manipulation.
We hear: She doesn't have any injuries, genital trauma, fluids from the perpetrator, etc. so she must be lying.
Did you know? Child sex offenders want to continue the sexual abuse of the child, therefore they are far more likely to not injure the child. As sex offenders groom their victims, they are convincing the child that the abuse is okay, normal, feels good, and they confuse their victims by connecting the abuse to "attention," "love," "affection," or "being grown up." For children from broken homes or stressed out families, those things may be missing in their lives. Child sex offenders abuse in secret, making sure not to leave injuries or fluids for which the child may seek help.

You can help keep kids safe and LifeHouse can help you!


 

A record amount of money was raised for LifeHouse at the 4th Annual Dueling Pianos event on Saturday, September 24th!  Thanks to everyone who attended, donated, sponsored, volunteered and supported this event, LifeHouse is able to continue much needed programs for children in crisis in our community.
We weathered a downpour that night, but we were thrilled to see so many people dancing and enjoying themselves as we raised funds and awareness about a serious problem facing kids today!  Special thanks to our Grand Piano Sponsor, the Shawnee County Sheriff's Office and to our emcee for the night, Brooke Lennington.

We were also excited to unveil our new LifeHouse video to kick off the evening.  Thanks to MotoVike Films, Det. Palmberg, Det. McLaughlin, Kyle, Jacob, and Daisy for helping us put it together.   You can see it for yourself here.

Come learn about sex offenders and learn new ways to identify how they manipulate families and communities. Nationally 300,000 cases of child sexual abuse are reported every year, with fewer than 5% of child victims ever telling anyone.  Few offenders are ever caught because they work extremely hard to   rehearse their defense as well as silence and seduce their victims. You can help prevent child abuse!

 


 

Congratulations!

It pays off to support LifeHouse! For 21 years, the Sertoma Clubs of Topeka have organized the Great Topeka Duck Race. Ducks are adopted and then dropped into Lake Shawnee for the race. The funds raised go to many great organizations all across our area, including LifeHouse, and the folks who adopted the ducks can win lots of great prizes. This year, we are excited to announce that a LifeHouse duck adopted by longtime volunteer Pat Shehi won a 1983 Ford Mustang convertible!  Congratulations Pat!

Thank you to everyone who adopted ducks to support Sertoma and LifeHouse.  We truly appreciate all of your support!

It’s been a great start to 2016! The dedication and commitment shown by volunteers, board members, donors and supporters keeps LifeHouse going strong to serve child victims in our community. During this first quarter, LifeHouse staff provided services to 69 children and 58 caregivers, provided education and outreach to four community groups and the LifeHouse Forensic Interviewer testified in three court cases.  LifeHouse Volunteers were also busy helping with our March St. Patrick’s Day Food Sale fundraiser. During the parade, held on March 12, LifeHouse sold breakfast and lunch items throughout the morning to float entrants and parade goers and raised over $1,000 to help us serve child victims of sexual abuse, extreme physical abuse and children who witness violent crime.
Thank you to everyone who participated!

-Kelly Durkin, Executive Director
