Each year our Children’s Advocacy Center Family Advocates select several of our families who have experienced a dramatic change in their economic and support systems as a result of child sexual abuse occurring in the home. Many of these families have had to relocate and leave their belongings behind. Winter Wishes donates items to these families so their holidays can be a little warmer and happy. Individuals and companies can adopt a family for this important giving event during the holidays!
