This year, the Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania (CAC/NEPA) marks its 21st year of service as the region’s child abuse intervention center. April is Child Abuse Awareness month and on Friday, April 26th 2019, CAC/NEPA will host “Cocktails by Moonlight” at POSH, in Downtown Scranton to honor several distinguished child advocates in our community.
Since 1998, the Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania has helped more than 15,000 children and adolescents by effectively assessing and treating child abuse and neglect. Often experiencing shame and guilt, these children undeniably need the special treatment they receive at CAC/NEPA to repair their broken childhood…and keep it from having a lasting effect on their adulthood. Now in existence for nearly twenty years, CAC/NEPA continues to strive to expand its services for child and teen victims of abuse in our community. The money we raise at the event will support the critical services provided by our child abuse intervention center including Forensic Medical Examinations and Assessments, Forensic Interviews, Trauma Therapy, Counseling Coordination, Child Advocacy Services, and Child Abuse Prevention Education.
We can’t change what has already happened, but with your help we can change what happens next.
This past year, CAC/NEPA served 720 child and teen victims of abuse thanks to the support of people and businesses in our community. We ask that you make a commitment to support our annual Cocktails by Moonlight event by sponsoring this event with a charitable contribution or raffle prize donation. On behalf of the CAC/NEPA’s Board of Directors, dedicated Team, Community Council, and the child victims of abuse and neglect whom we serve, thank you in advance your consideration of supporting our “Cocktails by Moonlight” event. Your generosity will make a difference in our community by allowing us to continue our work in child abuse intervention.
