Give an abused child in our community a chance!
A chance to:
•Heal and recover.
•Grow up healthy and whole.
Your gift will help to reduce trauma for an abused child, to keep them safe, and to promote their healing.
Foothills Child Advocacy Center is the only non-profit organization dedicated to serving child victims of abuse in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Albemarle County and the surrounding counties. We provide a coordinated system of effective response and intervention to children who have been victimized. Our goals are to minimize trauma, promote healing, and ensure child safety.
Your gift will help to:
•Provide a safe, private, and child-friendly place for abused children to talk about what happened to them.
•Reduce trauma for an abused child because the interview will be recorded so that the child does not have to talk about the abuse over and over again.
•Provide crisis intervention for the child’s caregivers.
•Ensure that the child has a safe and nurturing home environment.
•Promote the child’s healing by providing family support and referrals for needed services.
•Coordinate a multi-disciplinary team response that is child-centered and meets the family’s needs.
•Educate adults on the signs of abuse, how to stop child abuse, and how to prevent child abuse.
Last year the number of children who needed our services increased significantly (by 27 percent) – and we project that the number of children who need our services will continue to go up. We will do our best to meet their needs, but we can’t do it without your help. We are a small nonprofit with a huge impact, thanks to the support of concerned adults like you.
Thank you so much for your consideration! You are a hero for kids!
