DID YOU KNOW…?
Mother Teresa once said “to change the world go home and love your family”
In 2019 La Plata County Department of Human Services received 30 reports of sexual abuse, while Mercy Regional Medical Center saw 24 pediatric sexual assault cases. According to local professionals, it is estimated that over 100 child assaults go unreported each year.
Due to COVID-19 and the lack of access to in-person schools and trusted adults, many children are experiencing “unsafe home environments”. With a rise in separation and divorce rates, we are also experiencing increased need for safe exchanges and supervised visitations.
One of the more powerful tools 4 the Children can wield to serve our mission to protect childhood today for stronger families tomorrow, is to develop a Child Advocacy Center, which is a community-based, child-friendly, multidisciplinary service for children and families affected by sexual abuse.
Currently, La Plata and Archuleta counties are one of only three areas in Colorado that does not have a CAC. With your help, we can change that.
