BENEFITING: CHILDRENS PROTECTION CENTER
ORGANIZER: CHILDRENS PROTECTION CENTER
EVENT DATE: Jun 17, 2017
Last year, the River Cities Dragon Boat Festival raised $115,000 for the Children’s Protection Center (CPC), a non-profit, child advocacy and safety center to help abused children. With more teams getting involved, we plan to raise even more this year! The River Cities Dragon Boat Festival is not only a total blast, it helps out the ones who need it the most. It’s a win-win!
The Children’s Protection Center (CPC) is the only organization of its kind in Pulaski County. It works in collaboration with all the agencies that help children in abuse cases from local law enforcement to community mental health professionals. We believe in a coordinated approach to investigations that is at all times, child-centered, limit the number of interviews a child must undergo, work directly with families to navigate the unique investigation process, and we give loved ones the tools to help their children recover.
