As part of CARE House’s celebration of 40 years of services, we’d like to share 40 easy ways for you to get involved and help child victims of abuse in Oakland County. We hope that you feel inspired to join us in our mission to keep children safe!

  1. Attend a tour – Our monthly Seeds of Hope tours are the best way to learn about the variety of programs we offer, and to see firsthand exactly how our forensic interviewing program works.

Earlier this week, I posted this article to our Facebook page. It’s by Rachael Denhollander, the first woman to file a police complaint against Larry Nassar in the summer of 2016. Since then, over 150 young women have come forward to report sexual assault by his hands.

In many ways, these past several weeks have felt like a tipping point for our society where victims can feel free to disclose their abuse, but this really isn’t the case.

In our last post of 2017, we focused on our Holiday Giving program, which provides gifts for CARE House families in need.

The individuals and organizations who donate those gifts aren’t able to contact their selected families, but the families can (and do!) send thank you notes to express their gratitude.
