Join us for our annual fall luncheon raising awareness and funds for The care center's child abuse prevention education programs.
In 2019, we educated nearly 14,900 children and adults across the community.
We are making a difference in the fight against child abuse!

gwen van de pas
Gwen van de Pas is a Dutch filmmaker living in San Francisco. She studied Film in Holland, holds an MBA from Stanford, and worked for consulting firm Bain & Company for eight years. During her time at Bain & Company Gwen began directing Groomed, a documentary that follows Gwen’s story as she travels back to her home country of Holland to confront her past and decide whether to report the man who sexually abused her as a child. In the film, Gwen reaches out to other survivors, psychological experts, and a sexual abuser. The film addresses what ‘grooming’ is, how to recognize it, and how to stop it.

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.
