ALBANY, GA (WALB) - People who care for and help abused children improve their lives try to bring attention to the issue.

Each day, children in the U.S. die because of child abuse. Open Arms in Albany held a Day of Hope Wednesday. They want to raise awareness of child abuse, and help parents and guardians find a better way to cope.

Fonda Strong said, "We want them to know that there is hope, regardless of what you go through, what may come your way, there is hope for our children."

Cuevas Stephens said, "It will make me feel wonderful if it makes a difference in the lives of children because that's what we work for, we work for the children." 

Open Arms also helps parents who need help. You can contact them at 431-1121.
