What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Child Advocacy Center

Since 1986, the Child Advocacy Center has worked to help children recover from physical and sexual abuse. In addition, prevention of the re-victimization of abused children is a significant priority. Last year, 492 sexually abused children were served through the Child Advocacy Center (CAC) and 402 of their non-offending parents and caregivers also received services.

Outcomes include: reduced trauma symptoms, improved school attendance, improved grades, and reduced self destructive acts

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program accepts children referred by Juvenile Court Judges who have been abused.   CASA works to find safe, permanent homes for these children as quickly as possible. Last year, 399 children were helped by Child Enrichment’s CASA Program. Some children are returned to their parents after the court has determined that it is safe. Others are temporarily or permanently placed with relatives. Several are adopted, and a significant number remain in foster care. The CASA program serves children age birth through 17 from three Georgia counties – Burke, Columbia and Richmond Counties. The CASA Program works to determine what is in the best interest of each child, and speaks for them in court. Every child should have a safe, permanent and loving home, and Child Enrichment's CASA promise to each, is that we will stay involved with them until they do.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Each child victim of abuse will receive an assessment and appropriate services will be provided for them. This may include forensic interviews, therapeutic services, clothing, social services referral, finding a safe and permanent home, or all of these. Each child deserves the chance to be loved and to grow up safe.

A well trained and committed staff and volunteers who work to help each child client. A board of directors who accepts the mission and works to fulfill it. Everyone can do something to help abused children. Child Enrichment makes it easy for people to help. From the donation of funding or material items to simply inviting us to speak, or telling others about the work that is being done at Child Enrichment... You too can help.

Child Enrichment has achieved much with little for almost four decades. The rich history and tradition of helping abused children is supported by our community and the affiliate organizations which share our goals. Our collaborative partners, academic institutions and our volunteers assist us throughout the year.

For years we have discussed holding a Capital and Sustainability Campaign. We have not gotten off the ground, mostly because it is an intimidating level of work and commitment required, and due to the many campaigns which have been running in our community. We need additional child friendly and therapeutic spaces to achieve the ultimate goals of helping children to recover.
