Elijah Evans founded No Use for Abuse, an anti-child abuse program, in 2012. No Use for Abuse educates the community about child abuse and ways to prevent this horrible tragedy from happening to children in the Youngsville/Lafayette area. No Use for Abuse supports an annual Back to School Bash to help with school supplies and hosts a Christmas of Hope party where children who were once abused can receive gifts and connect with each other. Inspired by his own life experiences, Evans works to promote awareness, interacts with survivors and garners sponsorships to help No Use for Abuse go further. At the age of 17, Evans is the youngest recipient of an Angel Award this year.
