Prevention Services to Children and Teenagers gets a Boost

Thanks to all the folks who bought a "It shouldn't hurt to be a child" specialty license plate. The Children's Advocacy Center received $20, 000 from the Governor's Office to provide critical educational outreach services to children in southern Arizona. Our curriculum to day cares and schools address issues such as personal and internet safety, and education about violence. Our middle school program, " Too Good for Violence" teaches children conflict resolution, communication and anger management. Of the $25 license plate price, $17 goes directly to primary prevention efforts.

Halloween and Trick or Treat Tips

Hi kids, well it looks like summer has come and gone and while I'm sure your all thrilled to be back at school (lol) but there's still a lot to look forward to, mainly HALLOWEEN! I have always loved Halloween. I get to put on my Super Dog costume, stay up late and smell all the kids that come to my door to trick or treat. And every once and awhile someone even drops a tootsie roll. Now for all the fun and games that Halloween brings, there's still a lot to keep in mind to stay safe. So for all you ghosts and ghouls, witches and werewolves remember a few quick tips.

Pima County Sheriff's Dept. donates Bicycles and Clothings

Christmas came early for children at the Advocacy Center. Thanks to the staff at the Pima County Sheriff's Property Dept., bicycles and clothing were donated to be used for needy kids. Rather than putting these items up for public auction, they will be given to children who come to the Center. Hurrah for our Trusted Officers in Uniform.
