Albany-- Every thirty seconds in the state of Georgia a child is the victim of abuse.
Georgia's First Lady, Mary Perdue, wants to help children in state custody through the Our Children Campaign.

The goal is to spur a new era of collaboration among Georgia's many communities, individuals, corporations and organizations. Today she spoke to the Albany Exchange Club to thank them for their support and to raise awareness of the need to help Georgia's children.

"We are raising awareness, we are showing people how to get involved. This club is an example of one of our champions, and I am wanting to encourage them to do even more"said Georgia First Lady Mary Perdue.

 As of July 2003, 14,481 children were in state custody.  Nearly 8,000  were in family foster care, more than 1,300 in group homes,  and more than 650 were in special settings because of serious emotional problems.
