I can not say enough about how wonderful Care House is & the people who work there! As a volunteer, we do not see the incredible services they provide directly, but hear of the many testimonials. I can only imagine the relief they must give the victims & families with their support & love. Thank God Care House is here, a safe place to reach out to for help & for no cost! I was blessed with a wonderful childhood & am now blessed to give back with such a worthwhile organization! If they weren't so outstanding, I would not be in my 12th year of volunteering

I really don't know what my family would've done without Care House. The effects of child sexual abuse is horrible for a child, but it also can have a long lasting impact on the entire family. The staff of Care House was nurturing, polite, warm and professional and supported me and my children from before the forensic interview, during the interview and afterward...all the way throughout the court process and even now. Bless the staff at Care House for being there for us.
