Thank you all so much who supported our recent “Friends of the Camden County Child Advocacy Center” event at Adelphia Restaurant. It is because of your generous donation and commitment to this great cause that we continue to make progress towards creating and maintaining an advocacy center that is a safe, child-friendly facility where the victims of child abuse can go to access the necessary prosecution, medical/mental health treatment and victim advocacy services. We are so grateful for your support!
National Children’s Alliance (NCA)
On 10/04/18, Jane Braun and Naomi Barach with the National Children’s Alliance (NCA) visited the Camden County Child Advocacy Center for one of the final steps of Camden County Child Advocacy Center and the Camden County Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) becoming an accredited member of the NCA. Lt. Amy Pisano and Section Chief Kelly Testa gave them a tour of the Child Advocacy Center and they observed one of our MDT meetings. (The MDT is a group of dedicated professionals who share the common goal to provide the best approach to effectively prevent, detect and prosecute crimes against children. The efforts focus on reducing the effects of the trauma and provide therapy for the children and their families, to promote the healing process, and prevent re-victimization through the legal, child protective and health and human services.)
On 7/11/18, Stephen Katz, the Sustainability Developer with IKEA’s Westampton Distribution Center, IKEA five co-workers from the Westampton distribution center, four co-workers from the South Philadelphia store, and 2 volunteers from Demountable Concepts Inc, a transport company, came together to help donate, deliver, assemble furniture, storage units, shelving, and decor to Friends of the Camden County Child Advocacy Center. The donations were made possible through IKEA’s “People & Planet Positive” initiative.
