2018 Champions of Childhood

Help us Champion Childhood

For most of us, the innocence of childhood provided a carefree time of discovery within the safe and comforting arms of family. But what if your childhood dreams were interrupted by the screams of violence? If instead of playing a game of hide and seek, you just wanted to hide?

Childhood - with all its wonderful milestones and memories - is worth protecting. At DVCAC, we are Champions of Childhood. Our programs provide critical support to help stop the cycle of abuse and provide hope and healing to those whose lives have been splintered by violence, abuse or neglect. Through our 24 Hour Helpline, education programs, safe shelter, therapeutic interventions and Supervised Visitation Center, we provide stability, develop new skills and help keep children safe.

The 2018 Champions of Childhood Campaign is raising critical funds and awareness for our children’s programming and dozens of individual and corporate champions are committed to helping us reach our goal of $80,000. The campaign will culminate at an event on May 3, 2018 as we celebrate our success and honor all of the champions who generously participated. This event will benefit the programs that offer protection, hope, and healing to children who have been abused or exposed to violence.
