It’s sometimes hard to know how your donation will help. With so many great organizations out this time of year, it’s easy to donate without knowing exactly what you’ve contributed to. We understand that. We have reached out to Bivona Child Advocacy Center to find out a little more information as to how the donations are used. We were extremely happy with what we learned.
Your gift of any amount will have an immediate impact, allowing Bivona Child Advocacy Center to:
-Partner with schools to prevent abuse through the education of children and teachers.
-Equip our specialized staff to identify abuse and take immediate action to stop it.
-Provide mental health services to help children and families heal from abuse.
$1,000 – provides 50 students with education to keep them safe from harm. Bivona has begun educating classrooms in two local school districts because we believe that educating adults is simply not enough to keep children safe and we need to be having conversations with children about safe and unsafe situations and how they can respond and communicate what’s happening with a safe adult.
$500 – provides an initial mental health evaluation and trauma screening for one child which allows the team to refer the child to therapy sessions that are needed to help the child heal from the trauma they have been exposed to.
$250 – provides one medical examination for a child who has been referred by our team. Our medical providers make children feel comfortable and address any concerns that the child expresses as a result of abuse they have endured.
$100- provides clothing, a blanket and pillow, as well as one comfort item for a child who has been displaced by violence. The children we see often have complex needs and our team often is providing basic necessities to children that we see.
With our goal of selling honey, the possibilities are incredible. We could help children to receive the education that they might not otherwise get in their environment to help them identify and hopefully avoid harmful situations. Children could receive basic things like clothing and a blanket and pillow!!
We are so excited to be part of this. We hope that you share in our excitement and are able to purchase a jar of honey to help Bivona Child Advocacy Center make a difference in children that need it.
