The Child Protection Center invites you to join us for a Night of Hope & Healing, one of the fastest growing events in South County. This is a celebration of hope as we come together in communal support and bring awareness to CPC’s mission of the Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment of child abuse. It is an evening filled with delights, including food and drink from some of the area’s top restaurants, extensive live and silent auction, and the opportunity to change lives and bring hope to the children of our community.
All proceeds of this event support the Child Protection Center and the Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment of Child Abuse. This impact is particularly crucial now as we expand to meet the growing needs for child abuse services.
Your voice raises essential awareness and helps break the cycle of child abuse. If you care, please share!
