How Your Dollars Can Make a Difference

  • $91.50 can sponsor a family for an entire month in a CHS program that helps parents build safe, strong foundations for their children
  • $100 can provide one hour of family therapy for a family affected by 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 counselor was wonderful. My daughter was totally at ease with her.” – Roberta, mother

“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
  • 97% of children who complete our early childhood programs have an ongoing source of continuous, accessible healthcare

“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

“I try to be as involved as possible with my kids. Your kids are your life, and you want the best for them, so you want to focus on your job and focus on your kids … which is a struggle. But because of CHS, I could focus on both. Our kids have experienced so much growth. I highly recommend it. The funny part about it all is you go in seeking one thing, and at the end, you come out thinking, ‘How far can I develop myself?’ It helped me as a human; I just want to be the best and be involved, and you just want to do the best you can as a dad or a mom.” – Will, dad of 2 who participated in a CHS early childhood program
