Please join us as we recognize April as Child Abuse Awareness Month at the Kids First CAC. Together, we will “plant” 291 pinwheels, each symbolizing a child victim from the last year in Roane, Morgan, Loudon, and Meigs Counties.

Help us “Paint the Town Blue” for Child Abuse Awareness by purchasing and displaying a Pinwheel (Suggested donation $5).

Together, we can create an environment of healing, strength, and support within our communities. Your involvement helps turn victims of child abuse into survivors of child abuse.

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.
