I learned about this organization when I met its executive director. She explained that the Center supports and medically asses children who are suspected victims of child abuse. Child abuse is a significant problem in our county, so I was interested in learning more. I toured the facility and was so impressed I became an active volunteer. I do everything from make phone calls, help with fund raisers, and prepare snacks.

Through my work, I learned that this Center is populated by some of the most dedicated, gentle, caring people I've ever met. From the administrators to the child interviews to the medical staff, every employee and volunteer is highly skilled and absolutely dedicated to child health. In addition, the program is highly effective. Children arrive frightened and unsure of themselves. After their interviews and exams, they leave far happier and relieved of their terrible stories of abuse. Frequently the exams result in law enforcement intervention which stops the abuse altogether. Families are also supported with support groups and referrals to mental health care providers for further healing.

In addition, the board of this organization is made up of local volunteers and professionsals who are thoughtful, intelligent, and very careful with the organization's funds. All dollars are stewarded very carefully.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it disappear due to the end of child abuse, so its services are no longer needed.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
