Northeast Tucson Welcome Club Is at it Again

The children at our Center have once again been the recipient of a generous donation from the Northwest 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. Sometimes they have not eaten all day and are here for hours waiting for a foster or relative placement. 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.

2014 Christmas wish list for SACAC

Our cupboards are getting bare and we need more winter wear for children and teenagers who come to our Center. Especially appreciated are: Clothing (especially jeans and expandable waists for boys) and (stretch pants/leggings for girls), sizes 3-14.
Shoes for girls and boys, sizes 3-5.
Journals (We would like to start giving journals to the older kids).
Hand held games for older kids (like bop-it, hangman, etc.).

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.
