THE STORY:

CHILDRENS ASSESSMENT CENTER wrote -

Ashley spent one and a half years being repeatedly sexually abused by her step-grandfather.  Every time she visited him, she was violated by someone she should have been able to trust.  And she had no idea how to tell anyone that it was happening.

Then one morning Mrs. M. visited her class at school. Mrs. M. was from the Children’s Assessment Center, and she was there to present the KIDZ Have Rights program to Ashley’s class. Through the hour they spent together, Ashley and her classmates learned the differences between nurturing touches, selfish touches, and confusing touches. They also learned that they have the right to say no to any touch they don’t want. And, most importantly for Ashley, they learned that they have the right to tell a safe adult about those touches.

When Ashley arrived home from school that day, she was finally able to tell her mom everything that had been happening to her for the past one and a half years. Ashley’s life changed forever that day with one simple classroom presentation.

Each year, the KIDZ Have Rights program through the Children's Assessment Center educates more than 15,000 prekindergarten through 4th grade students throughout Kent County with their body-safety rights.  

By donating to the CAC, you have a chance to put these essential tools--to report abuse or to prevent it altogether--in the hands of our children!  It only takes $10 to give a child the tools to report and end sexual abuse or prevent it altogether.  How many children will you help?

 

**Why is our goal $74,409, you ask?  Because since the beginning of our program (in 2004), we have educated 74,409 children with their body-safety rights.  Let's raise $1 per child--and double it with the Art Van 1st place prize!
