Aim for Advocacy is a fundraising event in support of services provided to child abuse victims and survivors. The Child Advocacy Center specializes in trauma focused and evidence-based services that assist children suffering from severe acts of child abuse, in telling their stories then taking the next step in their journey. Healing is possible when victims utilize the free services offered by the Child Advocacy Center.

Therapy Letters

How Kids First helped me

As children complete therapy, often times the child abuse survivor tells us how we helped him or her on their journey to freedom! The words of these child abuse survivors are powerful and are meant to show you how your support has helped child abuse victims break the vow of silence, to end fear and keeping secrets.
