The Children’s Advocacy Project has served nearly 4,000 children since opening in 2002 and today continues to help 300 children a year on average.

These are children who need healing, justice, and a chance to dream again. Not only do we serve these children, we also serve their family members in finding peace and a way to move forward. This work isn’t done in a bubble and cannot be done alone.
