THank you for visiting my page I hope you can help me make a difference by donating to this great cause. I am truly excited to be a part of this team and hope you'll support me if you can so that I can finish the race and achieve my goal of raising $500 for CATS.
I know times are tough for many of us right now, so I appreciate any contribution you can offer. They say that every donation makes a difference and it really is true. Your support helps CATS serve victims of sexual abuse plus helps them beginning the recovery process
Thank you for Helping me break the cycle of violence for victims of abuse!!!!! ;-)

Every 2 minutes someone is sexually assaulted in the U.S. 60% of sexual assaults are never reported to the police. 2/3 of assaults are committed by someone known to the victim.
CATS (Center for Assault Treatment Services at Northridge Hospital) provides 24/7 services to victims of sexual assault and abuse of all ages in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys. Each year we serve 1,000 victims, 1/4 of them are children age 6 or younger. At CATS, victims are cared for in a nurturing environment with their safety and well being a primary concern.
CATS collects forensic evidence which helps law enforcement and the D.A.'s Office get the abusers off the street, and educates the community about the importance of child abuse reporting.
