The Lisa Project goes beyond the statics of child abuse and allows visitors to see and hear the stories of abused children by walking through rooms of scenarios from the perspective of each child.

This exhibition is continuing to raise awareness for child abuse throughout San Bernardino County.

“As you begin to tour The Lisa Project, you take a child by the hand and listen to their story,” said Kristy Loufek, community and events coordinator with Children’s Network of San Bernardino County.

The Lisa Project has become a very powerful movement throughout each community because it has allowed people to become aware of the fact that child abuse is a reality. The project is encouraging the community to help stop the violence.

The Lisa Project provides helpful steps to protect children and strengthen families by making people aware of what they can do to help and stop child abuse,” said Loufek.

The tour begins with a real 911 call from a young child named Lisa. You are then led room by room through the lives of real children whom have been abused by their loved ones.

Throughout the whole exhibit you are led by the foot steps of a young child and are guided with an audio narration.

The exhibit has moved to The Victor Valley Mall in Victorville for the month of February and in March it will take its last stop at Victoria Gardens located in Rancho Cucamonga.

The exhibit is free and open to the public on Thursdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Times may vary at each participating location.

This event is PG-13 rated due to some of the mature content that is present. Children under the age of 13 are allowed to enter the exhibit but will not be given an audio device.
