Below are links to resources in our county available to assist at risk children and families. We try to coordinate with as many local child advocate organizations as possible. Our goal is to prevent child abuse and promote awareness about this issue.

These resources available are in our community to assist families who are struggling. Many of these agencies are not for profit. They exist simply to provide goods or services to children or families in need. Click on the link (if available) next to the agency and the link will open in a second window. Each agency website defines their mission statement and the services they provide. Do not hesitate to contact them. They exist to serve the community.
