MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – About five kids die every day in the United States from child abuse according to experts.

2 NEWS spoke with the director of CARE House who helps treat children with resources all under one roof. Director of CARE House, Libby Nicholson sees about 600 abused kids come through their doors every year.

Nicholson says if someone is abusing a child, it typically isn’t a one time thing. The abuse can leave victims with lifelong emotional and physical injuries.

“We as adults have a responsibility to choose responsible caregivers for our children. That’s often difficult for parents who lack resources. So, they resort leaving their children with people who are not adequate or competent and then bad things happen” said Libby Nicholson, CARE House director.
