The Child Advocacy Center
Change the life of a child who has experienced abuse or trauma
Your donation will provide …
- a safe place for a child to share their experiences of abuse with our Forensic Interviewers who are trained to reduce the trauma while gathering needed information.
- support for the family through the duration of the case. Our Family Advocates help find housing, transportation to therapy appointments, or simple provide a listening ear.
- much needed therapy for the child and affected family members by our Mental Health Therapists, at no cost, to help them heal from the trauma.
- abuse prevention programs in schools and community groups led by our Prevent Education Specialists to help keep children safe.
To walk a child from trauma towards healing costs $9,846. Every $200 we receive provides a child an hour of therapy. Every $216, provides a child with a forensic interview to safely disclose their abuse to someone ready to listen. Every $267, provides a family advocate to walk them through the daunting system and provide community resources. Every $272, provides a prevention education program to keep our kids safe.
Every family that walks through our doors – pays nothing.
