About This Activity

The Children’s House is a child-focused, facility-based program designed to provide services for child abuse victims. The Children’s House provides a child friendly environment that reduces trauma to the child victim by providing a place where children can feel safe. The services provided at the left are forensic interviews and medical exams to child victims at no cost to the victim or families. Our ultimate goal is to be a place of healing for children victims of abuse, with all the necessary services provided at no cost to the victim. The purpose of this event is to raise money in support of The Children’s House as well as raise awareness in our community about child abuse. 

Its your support for our children that makes a difference! Will you join us for our 2nd Annual Race for Healing to provide a child with a brighter future? It is easier to build a stronger child than to repair a broken adult!
