We need funds in order to establish a physical CAC location for the children of Jones County. We hope to staff our center with a forensic interviewer as well as victims advocates who would work closely with law enforcement and Child Protective Services. We would also like to provide children of abuse and non-offending family members with counseling, and access to healthcare, and basic necessities that may be needed during this horrific time. Each time you give, we are one step closer to reaching this goal for the children of Jones County.
