Children are our future!!!
Message from our Executive Director

Children who live in homes where domestic violence is present are in more danger today than ever before.

Statistically, children are sexually abused mostly by someone they know.

The COVID-19 stay-at-home order has affected the livelihood of our future. Racial discord is also affecting the minds and emotions of our future leaders.
