Tom Arnold to tour St. Luke's Child Protection Center

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Tom Arnold, actor, comedian and television host will tour St. Luke's Child Protection Center (CPC) Thursday at 3 p.m. Arnold, who grew up in Ottumwa, is a survivor of sexual abuse.

Arnold will meet with CPC staff to learn about the work they do to protect children.  He wants to draw attention to the issue of child sexual abuse.

The Child Protection Center works with law enforcement and the Department of Human Services to determine if child abuse has occurred, to develop a plan of action to protect the child from future abuse and to get the child and family members into appropriate counseling. They also work with law enforcement to hold the abuser accountable.
