Volunteer:

CARE House Volunteers are special people who give the precious gift of time to make a difference in the life of a child. Without the thousands of hours contributed each year by its volunteers, far fewer children and families would be served. There are many volunteer opportunities at CARE House of Oakland County.

Together we can make a difference: The Victims of Child Abuse Act

As one of our largest Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs), CARE House is part of a nation-wide movement of child-focused, facility-based programs with professionals from different disciplines working together to effectively investigate, prosecute, and treat child abuse. The movement began in 1985 and CAC’s now have more than 800 centers in the United States, serving more than 276,000 children in 2012.

Recognizing the value of these programs in preventing and intervening in child abuse, in 1990, The Victims of Child Abuse Act was authorized by Congress to provide funding for the development of these child abuse centers and the training of professionals specializing in the intervention and prevention of child abuse. Because of wide bipartisan support these critical supports for abused children have become a nationwide network of care.

CARE House has historically received a portion of it’s funding through the Victims of Child Abuse Act, for training, technical assistance and an accreditation.  All of the published research has demonstrated the positive outcomes for these programs and also cost-savings through the collaborative response to child abuse. Indicators are that this effort is paying-off; child abuse victims are stepping forward to seek treatment.  The need for these programs at CARE House has never been greater.

CARE House is also member of the National Children’s Alliance; a professional membership organization dedicated to helping local communities respond to allegations of child abuse in ways that are effective and efficient – and put the needs of child victims first.  You can learn more about the NCA and the Victims of Child Abuse Act at www.nationalchildrensalliance.org.

Please share this with the community; Children need the services provided by CARE House!   Thank you for your support!   

Carol Furlong, CARE House Executive Director.

CARE House Workers Strive to end Child Abuse

By Jeanne Towar - Daily Tribune columnist

When she was just 16, Christina Gallardo knew she wanted to be a voice to stop violence, particularly against children. “It’s something we don’t talk about in our society, but one in six boys and one in four girls have been sexually abused before they turn 18,” Gallardo said. “I knew I had to do something about that.”
