20th Anniversary Gala
September 29 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm| $150.00
The Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania (CAC/NEPA) is a private, nonprofit, charitable organization whose mission is to provide excellence in the assessment & treatment of child victims of abuse and neglect. Often experiencing shame and guilt, child & teen victims who have experienced traumatic abuse undeniably need the compassion and specialized treatment they receive at our Center, to begin the healing process and keep the abuse from having a lasting effect on their adulthood.
In 1998, the Children’s Advocacy Center of NEPA opened its doors to serve child and teen victims of abuse. With one board-certified pediatrician and an attending nurse, we served 32 children in a three-room office – in its first year of operation. This past year, we provided 1,676 child abuse intervention services to 839 children & adolescents. These services included: 682 Forensic Interviews, 670 Medical Exams & Assessments, 291 Advocacy, Support & Referral Services and Evidence-Based Trauma Therapy for 33 Children at our Mulberry Center.
In celebration of 20 years of service, we are hosting our Emerald Gala on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel.
The following people will be honored at the Gala:
William Browning, Executive Director, Lackawanna County Department of Human Services Office of Youth & Family Services
Lieutenant Colonel Robert Evanchick, Acting State Police Commissioner
Assistant United States Attorney Michelle Olshefski
Musical Entertainment by Daddy-O and the Sax Maniax!
