When I was the Executive Director of Trafficking in America Task Force, Inc. (a non-profit organization in Nashville, TN) I coordinated the first Press Conference in that city and others in TN and NC for the purpose of forming collaborations between law enforcement from all branches, legislators, and non-profit organizations working to address human trafficking in their areas. After a few very successful events, I sought NGO's across the United States to partner with TIATF and to coordinate similar press conferences. Faces of Child Abuse (FOCA) was one of the first that stepped up to the plate. Paola Garcia (Founder of FOCA) and I discussed plans for their conference in San Antonio, TX. She went to work and coordinated a very successful event bringing together law enforcement, legislators, NGO's, and survivors of human trafficking in TX to discuss the priority issues and plan next steps to move forward as a cohesive team to prevent future abuse and bring education and awareness to San Antonio. I attended the event and could not have been more proud. Ms. Garcia was responsible for launching a collaborative effort between the main stakeholders, that to date, had not been achieved. i am proud to be able to share such a ground-breaking event in one of America's most crucial issues.
I have come to know Paola over the past 7 years since, and have found her to be one of the most credible NGO's in this field. Her integrity is solid, her love for children is genuine, and her motive is pure. I highly recommend this organization to any philanthropist seeking an organization with sound practices and mission.
Love for children and serving others is the heartbeat of this organization. It’s not just children, but their families as well that receive the support and blessings that flow forth from this group. Children are our future. They are to be loved and cherished, not abused. Help stop the abuse! Be the solution and get involved.
Excellent work! raising awareness and educating people to wake up and realize that child abuse is everyone's problem and we should all get involved. Children need our help and foca is speaking out for the children.
Faces of child abuse helped me pay my past due rent since my husband left. I have 3 small children and just didn't seem to catch up. We were able to stay at our apartment. They do Good works.
Great job at spreading awareness and getting involved. Children who come from abusive environments need this. Keep up the good work!
Connected very well with the community and the kids. Made sure events were informative and interactive. Loved the creativity behind kids activities at children’s parade!!
Very effective at spreading awareness and reaching out to the community. Great organization!!
I highly recommend this nonprofit organization. There is a significant need of people that care for children, especially those hurt by abuse which in our state seems to be a huge problem, we see it on the news and around us. There are not enough people that help the cause of abused children. I can vouch for the passion that the founder has for helping those whose voice is not loud enough. Please support this organization, "The Faces of Child Abuse"
The founder has a great passion for raising awareness in the prevention of child abuse . She strongly believes that prevention is the key to ending child abuse. She has responded to the needs of children by using this organization as voice for the voiceless and a platform to educate and create a better world through the prevention of child abuse.
Faces of child abuse is a great non profit organization. It brings awareness and education to the community about child abuse. It provides valuable resources to better the lives of children and families affected.
It has been very rewarding to volunteer with Faces of Child Abuse a few times. I admire the organization’s passion to not only bring awareness to the community, but educate and aid the community as well. Faces of Child Abuse strives for prevention!
Faces Of Child Abuse (FOCA) focus on prevention of child abuse which is very important. Reaching out to the community with educational material for both adults and children. FOCA has a short 1 wk educational program for any school or educational facility to implement and it is completely FREE. This education program empowers children and teaches them what behaviors are safe and unsafe. They also help families in need as funds come available to them. I support the work they are doing!
