Child Sexual Abuse is an Epidemic that Can Only Be Solved With Awareness, Education, and Action. 

The Mama Bear Effect is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We aim to provide affordable educational materials and awareness items for individuals and organizations working to educate their families, youth organizations, and communities. Proceeds from product sales support our charitable work to raise awareness for the prevention of child sexual abuse. 

Adrianne Simeone

Founder & Director

I created The Mama Bear Effect in 2012 as a social media awareness campaign,  which quickly grew into a nonprofit in 2013, to combat the epidemic of child sexual abuse, estimated to affect 1:10 children to possibly as many as 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys. With over 90% of abuse being perpetrated by people known and trusted by the child and family, I knew awareness and education were essential to protecting children and that all good adults must take on the responsibility of doing everything we can to reduce risk and empower children to know abuse is never their fault. This continues to be an amazing journey connecting with advocates and organizations from around the world and seeing our materials encourage and inspire the change needed to keep our children safe.
