Child Advocacy Center to hold open house
The Child Advocacy Center of Aiken County, a nonprofit that helps young victims of abuse and their families, will hold an open house at its facility.
The event, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled for 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7.
There will be tours and drawings for door prizes.
In addition, food and beverages will be served.
Also during the open house, the Child Advocacy Center officially will launch its Advocacy Angel fundraising program.
“We are trying to reach out and make it easier for people to donate,” said Child Advocacy Center Executive Director Susan Meehan. “The program is designed to create a steadier stream of funding throughout the year, especially during months when we receive fewer donations.”
Participants in the program will be asked to give $20 or more per month. At the end of the annual giving period, they each will receive a print of a painting by Leslie Alexander.
The Child Advocacy Center was established in 2005.
Services it provides include forensic interviewing, medical exams, trauma-focused therapy, advocacy support services and prevention education.
The Child Advocacy Center is at 4231 Trolley Line Road.
