Survivor Tree Lighting PosterPlease join us for the inaugural Survivor Tree Lighting Ceremony, Tuesday April 7 at 6:30pm. This event is free and open to the public.

As part of Baton Rouge Area Victims Empowered’s mission to make a difference in the lives of victims of crime, the Baton Rouge Downtown Development District has been asked to dedicate an oak tree downtown to honor victims of violent crime. This tree, which is located on the North Boulevard near 9th Street, will be lit during the month of April each year, and will serve to commemorate those in the community who have survived violent crime.

Known as a revolutionary sexual abuse prevention training program, Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children help to educate adults on how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. The program believes and teaches that child safety is an adult’s job.

Last year, over 850 adults in the Baton Rouge area were trained in Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children program.

The YMCA has partnered with the Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center, Prevent Child Abuse Louisiana, BREC, and Sexual Trauma Awareness and Response (STAR) to provide Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children trainings in the Baton Rouge area in 2015.

 Heroes for Hope 2014

On Wednesday, April 9, 2014, a reception was held in honor of the Society for the Preservation of Lagniappe in Louisiana (SPLL) for their generous donations to the CAC over the past 6 years. SPLL has given over $70,000 since 2008 and as a token of our appreciation we installed a flamingo weather vane on the roof of the CAC house and honored SPLL with the Heroes for Hope award as our way of saying thank you for pointing us in the right direction.   The gathering included Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center Board Member and SPLL Board Members.
