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.

Child Sexual Abuse Prevention for Parents and Individuals
No one wants to imagine one of their children being sexually abused, the truth is that this abuse occurs and should never be left unnoticed. Educate yourself on the facts NOW and make sure that your child does not fall victim to abuse. Child sexual abuse crosses ALL boundaries and is not limited by ethnicity, geography, or socio-economic standing. The good news is, that is we as responsible adult arm ourselves with the facts, we can PREVENT child sexual abuse.
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.
