How Your Dollars Can Make a Difference

  • $62 can provide one hour of family therapy for a family affected by abuse or neglect
  • $91.50 can sponsor a family for an entire month in a CHS program that helps parents build safe, strong foundations for their children program – so they never experience abuse or neglect
  • $250 can cover the medical evaluation for a child who has experienced abuse or neglect

Donations at Work

Children who have experienced abuse or neglect take their first step toward healing in our warm, friendly Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC). More than 2,500 children receive vital services at our CACs each year.

“The CAC is life-saving. They have saved my two children … and me.” – Stacy, mother

We also work every day to prevent child abuse and neglect, equipping families with education, resources and support so they can create the safe home every child deserves.

  • 98% of children who complete our early childhood programs remain safe at home with their families

“Feeling the trust and support that other people provide is something that motivates a lot and more when people are trained in the area and when they carry out their work with so much love. I greatly appreciate the education we received from the entire group, including my home visitor who taught us strategies and provided resources that we will use now and in the future.” – Amanda, mom of 2 who participated in a CHS early childhood program
