TAALK has educational and support offerings for a variety of community segments. Our focus is to promote healthy discussions about the prevention of child sexual abuse that empower community members to take actions that intercede with potential abuse before it happens. We also strive to give direct and indirect survivors an opportunity to not only use their voice but to actually be heard.
