A grant was awarded to the Children's Advocacy Center recently.
According to Director of the CAC, Judy Brucker, the grant was announced at a state-wide level to be given to rural CACs for the express purpose of creating a reading area. Due to the donation and the creativity of the staff, the new Reading Nook will serve as a special and comfortable place for the kids to spend time before an appointment.
The goal for the nook is to create a more relaxed atmosphere in the CAC for the kids.
The Reading Nook has already been completed and is in use.
The CAC is always available to help children and families when there are allegations of sexual and physical abuse of a child. To report suspected abuse call their hotline at 1-800-252-2873.
