Silent Tears, a public-private partnership who’s mission is to¬†Give a Voice to Child Sexual Abuse, was launched in 2013 by Greenville, South Carolina residents and Philanthropists, Lisa and Bob Castellani.

Few have ever given thought to the tremendous impact child sexual abuse has on the economy and social fabric of our society. Child sexual abuse is at the root of many societal problems. If we examine each of the common individual consequences of child sexual abuse in light of the prevalence rate, we can see how child sexual abuse has ramifications for each and every one of us.Silent Tears, was established to ensure that each segment of this generational problem was thoroughly and systematically examined, assessed and measured.

The compilation of fact-based research, coupled with expert examination and assessment, will lead to necessary changes in our legislative, judicial and social areas of our society.
