Architect rendering of the future home of the Children’s Center

Since 1993, our center has served hundreds of children from hard places each year. We have continued to evolve and develop to meet the growing and changing needs of our community’s most vulnerable children. In the past few years, the number of children referred to our CASA and Children’s Advocacy Center has more than doubled.

Your monthly or one-time gift will be used build and furnish our new, larger facility.

Help us meet the $100,000 challenge from the Glaser and Donaghey families! We have received generous gifts and pledges of $50,000 from the Glaser Family Charitable Foundation and $50,000 from Bonnie Donaghey in memory of her late husband, Lewis.  Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar by these families.  That means your donation of $100 would be double to make a contribution of $200!

With your gift, we will be ready to meet the challenges that lie ahead so that kids from hard places will always have a safe place and someone on their side to help them as they heal and grow.
