Child Protect supports children who are victims of abuse through the investigation and management of their cases in a child friendly venue.
Linda (8) and Susan (6) are sisters who were sexually abused by their own father, Wendy (12) was violently raped by her 27 year old uncle whom she loved and trusted and Jacob (9) witnessed the brutal killing of his mother. These are true stories from 4 children of the 602 that were served by Child Protect last year.
Each of the children we serve has a name that is forever written on our hearts. We are often asked, how can you do the work you do everyday, seeing the saddest and worst cases that society does to the children? Our answer is always the same, how can we NOT do this? Who but us can hear the voices of these precious children as they tell of the abuse they suffered at the hands of those they trusted and loved?
Though we have been called to work on the front lines, we could not continue the important work of serving child abuse victims in our community without the your continued support. By giving to Child Protect, you too are leaving your handprint on the heart of a child.
