Child abuse doesn’t stop during times of crisis; in fact, right now at-risk children are more vulnerable than ever. For many children, home is not a safe place. Isolated, without our community’s normal safety nets, children are facing their abusers all alone. That’s why ABC House doctors are working around the clock, providing critical medical expertise for law enforcement and child protective services to make real-time decisions about how to keep children safe.
Right now, your support is more important than ever. As you may know, due to COVID-19 safety concerns we postponed Celebrate Hope, our biggest fundraising event of the year. While we hope to reschedule the event, the funds we would have raised at Celebrate Hope presented by Town & Country Realty are needed now.
Your investment today will ensure that our doctors can continue to provide emergency medical consultations, day or night, on cases that just can’t wait. Equally critical are on-site medical exams and forensic interviews to identify abuse or – just as important – help screen it out. Your gift also provides trauma counseling and ongoing family support when children and families need it the most. Can we count on your donation?
Without supportive adults nearby, and the longer social distancing is in place, the greater the number of children who will be at risk. With your help, children impacted by abuse will get the help they need. Your donation will help a child who is facing the scariest time of his life.
COVID-19’s impact on our community is unprecedented but ABC House remains committed to helping children who depend on our services – even when our resources are limited.
Thank you to the following sponsors for making healing possible!
