Join us for our annual fall luncheon raising awareness and funds for The care center's child abuse prevention education programs.

In 2018, we educated nearly 7,300 children and adults across the community.
We are making a difference in the fight against child abuse!

featuring guest Speaker, kevin mcneil

While working as a former Special Victim’s Detective, Kevin McNeil noticed that for every case he closed, there were three more to investigate.

He worked long hours as a police officer, but it was at home that he faced his greatest enemy – himself. He struggled with constant thoughts of suicide, alcoholism, and depression.

The consequences of his own abuse lingered, and it was in therapy that Kevin learned about the effects abuse has on the brain and a person’s behavior. 
He found that reading about abuse and educating himself played an immeasurable role in his healing process. The suicidal thoughts stopped, his urge to drink decreased, and his depression faded. From these positive experiences through education, Kevin was inspired to create The Twelve Project, a safe place where people can learn about abuse and its effects 24/7.

Through education, we are giving children and adults the tools they need to identify and prevent child abuse.

The CARE Center offers two free child abuse prevention education programs.

ROAR teaches children ages 4-8 body safety and empowerment and Recognizing & Reporting Child Abuse & Neglect teaches adults the signs, symptoms, and risk factors of abuse as well as how to properly make a report.
