In this beloved community we call home, we safeguard those with no voice: the animals, the open spaces, the less fortunate. But another vulnerable sector needs our help: our child abuse victims. Since its 2012 inception, the Summit County Children’s Justice Center has served over 800 child abuse victims and their families. We provide the first point of contact in the investigative process and offer a safe and nurturing environment to ensure kids can recover.
The Problem? We still do not have a place to call ‘home’. We are currently located in a cramped space next to the DMV. We can do better!
Sunday, June 25, from 4-8 p.m., come to our inaugural Pig Roast at the City Park Pavilion (next to the Miners Hospital). All proceeds will help fund a fully-equipped campus for Summit County child abuse victims and their families. There will be live music by Lash LaRue, beverages by PC Brewing and a roasted pig. Register now at http://www.ccjsc.org/events ( $50 pp/$150 per family).
Kids can recover. You can help — and pig out in the process!
