Sexual Abuse at Community Facilities

Community facilities are excellent places to get involved with others in your local area. They are also great places to learn something new, enjoy outings, work out, create art, work on a project, and more. Unfortunately, one problem with these types of facilities is that they sometimes put people at risk for the bad and dangerous behavior of others — including sexual assault. Studies show that up to 40 percent of females and 16.5 percent of males will experience some form of sexual assault when they are adolescents or children. Community facilities are locations where many of these assaults occur.
