🖐 Give a High 5. Donate $5. Encourage brave WV kids! 🖐

For the month of April, the MCCAC is participating in the High 5 Drive for Brave WV Kids. Donate $5 to the Marion County CAC and challenge your friends to donate by sharing on your social media page.

Coming in April!

Last year, 4,703 brave WV kids walked through the doors of a Child Advocacy Center following allegations of sexual abuse, physical abuse, or neglect. 142 of those kids were seen at the MCCAC. The West Virginia Child Advocacy Network is asking you to join the #High5Drive by donating $5 to give a High 5 to one of those brave kids! We know that child survivors of abuse can heal from trauma — with the right community response!
