Just For Kids exists to change those numbers and lead the fight against the cycle of child abuse through a stronger, more approachable model. And over the past year, we’ve made significant progress by providing 304 forensic interviews, 12 medical exams, and therapy to 87 children in our community.

What Caregivers Are Saying
- Our caregivers agreed that their child/children felt safe at Just For Kids Child Advocacy Center.

How This Benefits Our Community
- The CAC model saved taxpayers in our community $302,583.00 in investigative expenses this year.
- If the CAC hadn’t intervened, the estimated lifetime costs of abuse for the children we served last year would have been $ 21,421,224.00.
