ChildHelp was founded by Sara O'Meara and Yvonne Fedderson in 1959, a time in which child abuse in America was still very much a "silent" epidemic. The efforts of the organization are focused primarily on raising awareness, lobbying to pass laws to encourage the reporting of suspected abuse and developing cutting-edge programs to treat and prevent abuse. The two women have greatly succeeded (in fact they have twice been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize) and their achievements include helping to designate April as National Child Abuse Prevention month and creating a national child abuse hotline 1-800-4-A-CHILD.
