When Barbara Fults, a volunteer with a local child abuse prevention center, arrived at the home of her first client late one January afternoon, she found four children running around and "not a light bulb in the house." "This was a gal who had no idea how to raise children," Fults said later. Fults eventually became a kind of surrogate mother for her client, fielding as many as four phone calls a day from the woman seeking advice.

The near-tragedy a few weeks ago sparked Sullivan's interest in the fight against child abuse.
