The most unprofessional non-profit organization I have ever volunteered for! The Director is a narcissistic person that needs to handle her own childhood abuse.
The names of Duluth Duke and Bill M. are one in the same—her husband!
The Director tries to latch onto successful child abuse organizations because her own is failing due to her maltreatment of advocates. As soon as they see her true colors, they bail. She has lost some strong advocates since the last MMACA event last April.
She wants you to sign policies that she and the VP don’t adhere to.

One of the worst non-profits I have ever been involved with. When presented with sharing some time with PCA she balked at the opportunity. Going against her own mission statement about working with other child abuse prevention organizations.

LIN Seahorn has dedicated her life to helping victims of child abuse. She has my utmost respect and admiration. I have volunteered for this organization going on 2 years now and I have enjoyed every moment. I enjoy working with Lin and the other volunteers and I looked forward to all the GOOD that Lin and everyone that helps will accomplish. CWAV is a great organization and if there isn't a MACA walk in your area... GET one going. I met some great people on the walk last year and look forward to the walk again this year. Thank you Lin for all that you do for the children and all that you give on a daily basis that no one sees or even hears about. Great job!

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

Get more volunteers to spread the word and help the children.

I have volunteered with CWAV since January 2013. This organization not only provides free brochures to aid in prevention but also works so hard to get tougher sentencing on convicted child abusers through their action alerts. This organization has really touched my heart and I have come to know Lin Seahorn very well. She is a survivor and advocate, and puts her heart and soul into making a difference for voiceless children. She also has the anti-bullying campaign with prevention education which I think is very important when it comes to teens and the suicide rate, these kids have somewhere to turn and in turn lives are saved. Shaken baby Syndrome is also high on CWAV's priority list and is 100% preventable through education. All materials they provide are free of charge in the hope babies will be saved. I have much respect for Lin and CWAV and what they stand for and what they do 365 days a year and 24/7.

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

engage more social media, so Cwav could reach more people and gain more financial support for the programs it has so we can do more

CWAV is an absolute educational and informative organization. It has the programs that the public needs to learn about the horrific crimes against children in this country, and how to become involved to help put an end to this silent epidemic. I became involved with CWAV last year when the founder, Lin Seahorn, started MACA, the Million March Against Child Abuse. The work of this organization is never ending and is dedicated to helping save childrens lives. This group has the utmost integrity with their tireless efforts to bring awareness to the issue of abuse and crimes against children.

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

I would love to see some type of grant or monies set aside for the work of this organization. Relying solely on volunteers and donations is not easy and this group is dedicated to saving the lives of the children of our country.

CWAV provides necessary educational resources for the prevention of child abuse. Child advocates are able to contact litigators to encourage tough sentences for child abusers. CWAV is an invaluable charity that stands up for the human dignity of children marginalized by modern society. I am proud to be a part of such an organization and hope that more join us in the fight against child abuse!

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

publicize more, to get more people involved in this worthy cause!

I have been involved with CWAV for months now and I still believe they are making a difference. Children are our future and every effort, every resource should be used to protect them.

I am honored to join CWAV in helping children against this pandemic of child abuse. I know my role is small, but I do feel I joined a non-profit that is 120% dedicated to the well fare of children as well as their future. Everybody I have met in this organization is committed to educating, preventing and helping children and I am proud to be considered a member.

I have been involved with this organization for 8 months. They are a voice for children who suffer abuse and have survived abuse. They do great things for prevention, and help in maximizing sentencing for the criminals of these terrible acts. They deserve grant money as they are trying to protect children who have no voice and end child abuse once and for all.

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

try and encourage more donations.
