Breaking the cycle of abuse - one child at a time

The Guadalupe County Children's Advocacy Center has been in operation only a few years and what a difference it has made. This is a safe place where law enforcement, child protective service case workers, medical personnel, and prosecutors can investigate child abuse allegations in a manner sensitive to the needs of young children. It has been sad to see these young children (some as young as eighteen months) come to the Center; however, we are so fortunate to have this facility in our midst. Volunteers can be a part of providing support for children and their families.
As with most organizations such as this, there is never enough funds (although the GCCAC has dedicated staff and volunteers who go above and beyond to help these abused children).
Thursday, February 19, 2009 there will be a fundraiser honoring Darren Dunn at the Events Center. The Celebrity Toast for Kids! This is always a fun event for a very good cause. Last year's 'toasted' was Sheriff Arnold Zwicke and he will be this year's host, introducing KWED's Darren Dunn.
