COVID-19 isn’t the only pandemic facing Ionia and Montcalm counties. Child sexual abuse is another, and the statistics are staggering.

One in 10 children will become victims of sexual abuse before they turn 18, according to Lori Kirkhoff, executive director of the Ionia Montcalm Secure and Friendly Environment Child Advocacy Center, otherwise known as the IM SAFE CAC.
