Help Us Help Them

The Child Advocacy Center of Aiken relies on the generosity of our friends and neighbors to provide children the tools they need to start on a successful path to recovery from abuse and trauma. Thanks to generous organizations and individuals like you, our center is able to provide all direct services at no cost to a child’s family. That means that cost never gets in the way of the healing services that children need, whether they visit the center once for their initial investigation of abuse, or every week for a year of therapy.

You make it possible for children and families to get the vital support and resources they need to heal. Thank you for making a profound difference in the lives of children in our community.

**Gifts to the CAC of Aiken are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month
All children need safe, strong, supportive families and communities to help them reach their full potential. During April, and throughout the year, the CAC of Aiken encourages everyone to become involved in activities that promote protection and increase awareness of child maltreatment and its prevention.

The pinwheel has become a symbol of child abuse and neglect prevention and serves as a reflection of the bright futures all children deserve.

Plant a pinwheel garden or join us as we plant hundreds of pinwheels each spring, representing the children served by the CAC of Aiken who received support to grow up safe and healthy. Contact us for more information.
