In The Spotlight

1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. 90% of the time the abuser is someone the child knows. Help us keep children in Ohio safe by passing Erin's Law! “Erin’s Law” requires that all public schools implement a prevention-oriented and age appropriate child sexual abuse program.

Purchase a $20 entry in our Raffle and have a chance to win a week at the Pueblo Bonita Rose Resort in Cabo San Lucas! Winner will be drawn at the Breakfast of Champions on April 30th.

DVCAC serves our community’s most vulnerable children whose lives have been splintered by violence, abuse or neglect. Our programs provide critical support to help stop the cycle of violence and heal both emotional and physical wounds. Through our Family Helpline, education programs, safe shelter, therapeutic interventions and Supervised Visitation Center, we provide stability, develop new skills and help keep children safe. We reach over 2000 children each year and building more support is vital in helping us continue these efforts.
