"Children can't speak for themselves. We have to speak for them and act on their behalf.' That's what Beau did, and that's what his foundation does", Biden said during the event at Ann's Choice retirement community's Liberty Commons Performing Arts Center.

A new partnership between the Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children and Doylestown Health, announced during a presentation October 10 in the Ann's Choice retirement community in Warminster, makes Doylestown Health the first health care organization outside DE to be part of the program, Doylestown Health CEO James Brexler said. "It's the lifelong impact of that abuse and it's real", Biden said.

The Doylestown Health partnership is the second of its kind in Bucks - a partnership with the Central Bucks Family YMCA was announced in May - and it is the first involving a health care system outside of Delaware.

"This cause is very important to me, not only because of other children, but because of my own three children", ShopRite of Warminster owner Joe Cowhey said.

"We want child predators to know Bucks County will not be safe for them", Biden said.

Biden thanked Cowhey for his work with the foundation and greeted several local officials from the stage, including District Attorney Matt Weintraub and former U.S. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick. "Be courageous", Biden explains.

For children with disabilities, the rate is even higher, he said.

Brexler said Doylestown Health is excited to be part of the new partnership. "He abused that power in a disgusting and immoral way". The Darkness to Light program is not required for mandated reporters, it's a great way to educate adults about child sexual abuse, said Kristen Houser, spokeswoman for Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape.

Biden agreed about the importance of training more adults.

Two of his children were adopted after having been foster children, he said. The campaign was launched in 2014 after recommendations from the White House Task Force to Prevent Sexual Assault.

"We know that those cases, the number of children who disclose and report, is nationally - and it's true here - far smaller than the number of children who are sexually abused", Ettinger added.

The ultimate goal is for the program to continue to spread and become nationwide, said former Vice President Joe Biden, the father of Beau Biden, former DE attorney general, who died in 2015.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has consistently made it a priority to use his platform to stand up for women.

WARMINSTER More than 27,000 adults in DE have already been trained in the Darkness to Light Stewards of Children program, which is created to teach adults how to recognize signs of, react responsibly to and prevent child sexual abuse.

Funding for the partnership comes from ShopRite of Warminster.

"All of you are here because of your commitment to protecting children", Biden told those in attendance.
