We began our race 30 years ago with a handful of volunteers and one child. We continue to provide a voice, heal the hurt and break the cycle for thousands of children Funds raised at our Gala through silent/live/raffle auctions, are used to fund the programs and services we offer to children and their families affected by child abuse, all free of charge. These include forensic interviews, victim and family advocacy, medical referrals, therapy/mental health services, case coordination and criminal court advocacy. All services are offered in English and Spanish We have a need to hire more staff so the children needing therapy are not waitlisted for services to help them heal their hurt. We are recruiting more volunteers to be a trained child advocate for the children entering into the foster care system. We are expanding our multi-cultural offerings and doing more to educate children and parents about internet safety, human trafficking and guidelines on “how to” parent so we can break the cycle of abuse for future generations.
