Speaking out for truth and enlightenment to save children, families, and individuals from child abuse.
Silence Hurts provides speakers to educate people of all ages on what everyone needs to know about child abuse, child grooming (befriending and establishing an emotional connection with a child, and sometimes the family, to lower the child's inhibitions with the objective of sexual abuse) and child trafficking.
Silence Hurts Foundation
Child abuse is so common that statistically you, or at the very least someone you know, has experienced it. Yet, given it's rampant nature in society, most know little about it, how to prevent it or what to do when they see it.
Educational talks directed toward:
Every child has the right to grow up without the fear of being abused!
Silence Hurts' primary mission is to help prevent children from being abused. We do this by speaking to groups and educating all on what child abuse is because:
THE EYE DOESN’T SEE WHAT THE MIND DOESN’T KNOW.
Armed with the critical information on what child abuse is and how it happens, parents and children can take the necessary measures to keep themselves and others safe from it.
Silence Hurts' secondary mission is to provide information, resources and direction if a child has already been abused. The steps to follow after abuse has happened are critical for a child to recover from their abuse.
About Steve Baer
"Child abuse in America is one of our greatest epidemics and one of our greatest shames."
Steve started his path toward working with children in the eighties by volunteering with The March of Dimes and The Special Olympics. From the eighties, until 2001, he was also a Sunday School teacher working with children from four years of age to high school seniors. Having raised five boys and always having a passion with caring for children, he was led toward the path of fighting for children that have been abused.
In 2009 Steve became involved with Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) while researching different opportunities to volunteer and help children. Having ridden and owned motorcycles since he was 14, this was a natural fit for him. Since there wasn't a local chapter of B.A.C.A. in Denver, he went on to be Founder and President of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of Bikers Against Child Abuse located in Denver, Colorado in 2010. Steve also served on the State Board of B.A.C.A. and was the Colorado State Chapter Development Officer for B.A.C.A. For six years Steve has received training in working with abused children through B.A.C.A. International. He has had the opportunity to work directly with children of all ages that have suffered abuse by visiting them at their homes, attending court with them and being moral support when they would have to testify against their abuser and escorting them to school and other events.
With his involvement with B.A.C.A., he has given many talks and presentations about child abuse to local child advocate agencies, City and County agencies. He also spoke to a crowd of three thousand at Emily's Parade, a benefit honoring a local young lady that was shot and killed in her school in Bailey, Colorado. While Steve has always tried to spread education and awareness about child abuse, his mission now is focused on the prevention of child abuse. He knows from experience that it is easier to prevent a child from enduring the horrors of abuse than it is to help a child heal after the fact.
Schedule TODAY to have him come speak to your group or organization. As Steve says, "You never know what child may be saved!!!"

One out of four girls and one out of five boys will be sexually abused by the time they are sixteen. Over 3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States every year!!! Four to five children die every day from abuse in the United States.
Disgustingly, the United States has one of the worst records among industrialized nations.
This is my full-time devotion. My talks and appearances are given FREE OF CHARGE to qualifying groups. You can help to save a child from ever experiencing the horrors of abuse. I do not want a fee to get in the way of providing critical information to families and their children.
Any donations that you or your organization may want to contribute are greatly appreciated. Donations enable me to continue this necessary work full time saving children's lives, and saving children and their families from the nightmare of child abuse.
Silence Hurts Foundation is a 501c3 Nonprofit and donations are tax deductible.
This is a national disgrace and an epidemic that needs to be stopped.
