It Shouldn’t Hurt to Be a Child. Help Us Provide Hope and Healing.
Nationally, one out of four girls and one out of six boys will be sexually abuse before reaching their 18th birthday. Since 2018, Kentucky has led the nation in reported cases of child abuse. The problem is real, and for children who’ve been abused it can n, nothing is more terrifying than the thought of telling someone what has happened to them.
Since 1994, the Children’s Advocacy Center of the Bluegrass has worked to reduce the trauma experienced by victims of child sexual abuse. This year alone, the Center will provide forensic interviews to over 1,000 children and crisis support to over 1,200 caregivers. Our expert medical staff will provide at least 250 comprehensive medical exams. More than 90 children will enroll in individual therapy where they’ll develop a healthy self-image, learn to trust again, and identify ways to protect themselves from further victimization.
There is no more direct way to help the Children’s Advocacy Center than by making a financial contribution below or by completing our CAC Donation Form and returning it with your payment. Your support makes it possible for us to provide hope and healing to the very children who need it most.
