About this program

Hero Project

The HERO Project is a community-based, media driven, child sexual abuse prevention program designed to educate and motivate adult community members who are not legally mandated to report child sexual abuse. Awareness of child sexual abuse and hotline information is promoted through media campaigns, outreach to child care organizations, and partnerships with other agencies' stakeholders. Through a 24-hour Hero Hotline, callers can receive information on how to assist a child they suspect is being sexually abused. Sexual Assault/Rape Crisis Services of Cumberland County is a HERO Project site. A resident of Cumberland County who calls the state-wide Hero Hotline will reach our center 24 hours a day.
