Child abuse hurts, but talking about it shouldn't hurt. The CASIE Center provides a child-friendly place where a child can tell their story while allowing multidisciplinary professionals to gather the information they need to keep the child safe or take legal action. From our toy filled play space, our comfortable interview rooms and our highly-trained, caring staff, every effort is made to make a child feel safe in order to reduce further trauma during the interview/investigative process. Child abuse hurts. You can help! Get involved, talk about the issues, take a stand against child abuse and donate on May 9, 2017!
Money raised from Give Local will allow us to provide a friendly, caring environment where children and families can feel safe and supported in the midst of an investigation of child abuse or neglect. Funds will be used to provide basic need items for children, including clothing, blankets, school supplies, diapers and snacks as well as important informational materials for the caregivers who are also often in crisis.
Child abuse and neglect happens in every community. We respect the courage it takes for a child to tell and nothing is more important to us than creating an environment that is safe and supportive for the over 1500 children who visit The CASIE Center each year. Every dollar donated allows us to address the unique needs of innocent children.
