CLEARFIELD — Clearfield County District Attorney Ryan Sayers and Clearfield County Child Advocacy Center (CAC-CC) Executive Director Dr. Mary Tatum recently announced that SCI Houtzdale has donated $300 pairs of pajamas and underwear in the center.
In addition to the resource donation, the SCI Houtzdale Employees Association donated $1,000 to the CAC, and SCI Houtzdale’s Journey For Change group donated an additional $1,000.
“These donations will help CAC-CC continue to provide direct services to child abuse victims in Clearfield County,” Sayers said.
The CAC-CC uses donations to fund day-to-day activities that ensure the children of Clearfield County receive the best possible services.
“We are beyond grateful for the continued support that SCI Houtzdale has provided to the CAC-CC over the years,” said Dr. Tatum.
CenClear provides fiscal oversight of the CAC-CC and began taking steps to establish a CAC-CC in Clearfield County in 2015. Services provided to the CAC-CC have grown since its inception in 2016 and serve more than 200 children and families each year. The CAC-CC now offers:
- Forensic interviews
- Short term case management
- Medical exams
- References to services
- Training/education in the community
These vital services would not be possible without the commitment of Multidisciplinary Investigation Team (MDIT) partners, including representatives from the District Attorney’s Office, Child, Youth and Family Services, agencies law enforcement throughout Clearfield County, medical personnel, CenClear, the Victim Witness Office, the Crossroads Project and PASSAGES, Inc.
The CAC-CC relies on community participation and support to contribute to the continued success of the program. Email [email protected] for more information.
The CAC-CC is also hosting a Legislative Luncheon from noon to 3 p.m. on August 1, where attendees can learn more about what the agency does and meet its staff. For more information, call 814-768-3155.
