Tucson Welcome Club Is at it Again

The children at our Center have once again been the recipient of a generous donation from the Tucson Welcome Club. Backpacks and clothes in all shapes and sizes were donated and will be given out to victims of child abuse at our Center. Thank you so much.

Tucson Electric Power & Grants that make a Difference

$5500 really does make a Difference to the Children at our non-profit Center. Once again, T.E.P. has assisted us in our never-ending quest for resources to help abused children and receive help dealing with trauma. We couldn't do it without all our community partners especially Tucson Electric Power. From the bottom of our Hearts, Thank you.


Sundt Foundation contributes toys, money and stuffed animals

Russell, " Courthouse dog" and Director Kathy Rau.

The next time a child comes to our Center, there will be a few more toys to play with and stuffed animals to cuddle. That’s because members of the Sundt Foundation choose to award us a grant to help us stock up on supplies. The money will also help fund the Center's Child Abuse Prevention Program.

JTED School Fundraiser

JTED( Joint Technical Educational District) students participated in a Fund Raiser with SACAC to earn money for both our and JTED programs !

2014 Tax Credits Donations, $200-$400

Oh, the things we can do with $400!!! Buy food, drinks and snacks for the kids that come to our Center in 2015.

Pajamas and toothbrushes/ toiletries for the children who are not going home and don't have anything to sleep in. Pants, shirts, underwear, shoes and socks, jackets, and backpacks for kids who don't have a spare outfit to change into the following day.
