Manhattan Beach : Sex Abuse Program Ended

December 05, 1985

The Community Health Education Project, initiated by the city to help parents and children deal with child sexual abuse, was officially completed this week.

Program coordinator Etty Garber, in a brief statement before the City Council, praised the city for taking steps to counteract the negative effects of alleged sexual abuse at the McMartin Pre-School and other local schools.

The project, which began as a one-year program on May 15, 1984, with a $66,000 grant and was later extended, was successful in educating teachers, parents and children on the issues of sexual abuse and developing a preventive program for youths, Garber said.
