Since the beginning of time, humans have had important conversations around campfires. It was here that tribes discussed matters that kept them alive and helped them to prosper. Times have changed, but our need for important conversations has not. The television and computer have become our new campfires. However, our conversations have been limited to only things we see on the news. We are silent about our worst enemy, Abuse. Conversations must not be limited to classrooms and courtrooms. If we want a better future for our children, we must bring the conversation into our living rooms.
C.A.M.P. is an educational program designed to bring abuse awareness and prevention and inform individuals, families, and communities on the effects of abuse.
Kevin’s own personal battle with abuse encouraged him to find a way to make others aware of the destructive effects of abuse on our world. As a survivor of abuse, he struggled with constant thoughts of suicide, alcohol addiction, and depression. He worked long hours as a police officer, but it was at home that he faced his greatest enemy-himself. The consequences of the abuse he had faced lingered, therefore he sought out therapy to aid in his healing process. It was in therapy that Kevin immersed himself in literature about abuse. He learned about the effects abuse had on the brain and a person’s behavior and found a correlation between abuse and violence in our culture.
Kevin created The Twelve Project to be the bridge between the lack of knowledge and awareness about abuse and people’s desire to learn. He provides resources with the aim of healing and teaching individuals, families, and communities. The Twelve Project is a safe place where people can learn about abuse 24/7. Inspired by the positive results people experienced from reading his teaching materials, he took his plan a step further; he retired as a detective and began speaking and educating full time.Send me a message
