The Story

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Apr 30, 2017

For most of us, the innocence of childhood provided a carefree time of discovery within the safe and comforting arms of family.  But what if your childhood dreams were interrupted by violence? What if you had no safe place?

 

Childhood - with all its wonderful milestones and memories - is worth protecting. At Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center, we fight every day to keep the children of our community safe and provide hope and healing to those whose childhood might be filled with less than joyful memories.

 

At DVCAC we are Champions of Childhood!

 

DVCAC serves our community’s most vulnerable children whose lives have been splintered by violence, abuse or neglect. Our programs provide critical support to help stop the cycle of violence and heal both emotional and physical wounds. Through our Family & Child Advocacy Helpline, education programs, emergency safe shelter, trauma therapy and Supervised Visitation Center, we provide stability, develop new skills and help keep children safe. We reach over 3,500 children each year and your support is vital in helping us continue these efforts.

$1,000 can provide 120 child abuse prevention classes in local schools or one week  of emergency shelter for a child and their mother escaping violence at home
