RE: VIVA Contest : If I only had a crown : Get $1 USD for each Steem

I think this is a great idea,
I greatly admire the work one organisation in the UK does to help women and children escape from abuse, however their women focused approach leads to numerous boys being turned away or cast out of the program once they turn 16 even though they to desperately need support, protection and a place to live.
Your Idea strikes me as one that would be more inclusive of the boys in this age range so gets my support.

Thank you williamsbanks and phoenixmaid for your confidence.

The services offered at the place in which I am involved offers services to ANYONE who has been a victim of sexual or domestic abuse, male or female. I don't know who he is, but I know at least one adult male receives services. Just from a couple quick glances of him I have had, he looks to be about 60.
I could be wrong, but I believe when people generally think of abused children, especially sexual abuse, or even domestic abuse, people think of girls and women being abused; but, boys suffer sexual and domestic abuse as well. I wouldn't want to turn away ANYONE who has suffered abuse, whether the abuse was physical, sexual, or emotional. Regardless of the abuse - it hurts - and affects the rest of one's life.
