you can make a difference

In any community, even one child being subject to abuse or neglect is simply unacceptable. Sadly, child abuse and neglect affects thousands across our county. Our specialty is meeting children, youth, and adults on-site, and providing education before abuse or neglect happens. We educate before a child can become a statistic. 

You have the ability to aid us on our mission. Whether you can give time, talent, or treasure, you have something special to offer. You have a way to help. Check out the ways you can contribute below to see how you can advocate for children in Washtenaw County.

Your donation, no matter how small, could help a seventh grade student in Ypsilanti learn how to avoid online predators. It could help a four-year-old in Saline relaize they need to tell someone about the adult that touches them inappropriately. These donations could teach best practices to dozens of educators, social workers, and parents county-wide.

Do your part to make child abuse and neglect a relic instead of a reality.

Don't have the resources to donate at the moment? We also accept in-kind donations and would happily accept laptops, desktop computers, and office supplies!
