BENEFITING: CHILDRENS ADVOCACY CENTER OF SUFFOLK COUNTY INC
I am running the 2015 Boston Marathon to raise funds and awareness of a very, very worthy organization doing tremendous work: The Children’s Advocacy Center of Suffolk County (CAC).
I learned about The Children’s Advocacy Center provides through a dear friend who is an Assistant DA who prosecutes cases where children have been the vicitms of sexual violence. I was so inspired by her work that I felt compelled to get involved and make a difference!
CAC a safe and welcoming place for children to talk about what’s happened to them and to find help and healing after abuse and exploitation. Every year the CAC works with over 1,300 child abuse victims by bringing together and working with police, prosecutors, social workers, advocates, medical and mental health professionals and others to provide high-quality, specialized services. We do this all in our child-centered location.
