During 2013, 15 of every 1,000 children in Michigan were abused by adults—higher than the national average, according to an analysis of government data by the national Annie E. Casey Foundation. In Detroit the rate was 19 per 1,000 children. Not only do these children suffer while they’re young but many face significant challenges later in life due to their abuse.
