Helping an Abused Child? Disability Social Security as Restitution
Every child is entitled to be raised in a loving and caring environment. Sadly, for some 750,000 children in the U.S. who are victims of abuse, the picture of a healthy childhood, without due intervention and restitution, is beyond reach. Child abuse chooses no status, religion or culture, and it’s inflicted in varying degrees. From calling the child derogatory names, threats of abandonment, neglecting medical care, to physical battery and sexual assault, child abuse can leave severe and long-term damage to a child to the point of disability.
