About Stop It Now!

Stop It Now! was founded in 1992 by Fran Henry, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, who recognized that standard ideas about preventing sexual abuse of children weren’t working. Stop It Now! believes that all adults must accept the responsibility to recognize, acknowledge, and confront the behaviors that lead to the sexual abuse of children. They offer adults tools they can use to prevent sexual abuse – before there’s a victim to heal or an offender to punish. In collaboration with a network of community-based Stop It Now! programs, they reach out to adults who are concerned about their own or others’ sexualized behavior toward children. For more than 10 years, their national toll-free Helpline (1.888.PREVENT) has provided thousands of adults a unique outlet to confidentially voice their concerns. They provide support, information, and resources that enable individuals and families to keep children safe and to create healthier communities.
