You are a Superhero!

Meet our Superheroes – YOU are a part of the Superhero Team!

Your partnership to Blow Away Child Abuse by minimizing the trauma children face when they are victimized by abuse is perfectly illustrated in Olivia’s story.

Using play and art therapy, four-year-old Olivia chose crayons, paper and tape to express her feelings during her therapy sessions. Referring to the abuse, Olivia described her heart as so overwhelmed with emotions that it exploded and was torn; then her heart was taped back together through therapy at CAC.

Your support enables CAC’s team of professionals to work with children and protective caregivers to aid in healing following the disclosure of trauma. Therapy helps reduce symptoms of the trauma, and at the conclusion of treatment the child and family participate in a graduation ceremony to mark this milestone.

Olivia reached that important milestone! She is a girl so full of personality, a girl who loves to eat green beans, a girl with a rainbow of favorite colors … a girl whose childhood has been restored.

April is Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month

TJC Art Club is Painting Your Custom Pinwheel for April

TJC students are painting pinwheels to increase awareness of child abuse in our community.

Pinwheels are the national symbol for child abuse awareness and prevention, and we are incorporating this symbol to BLOW AWAY CHILD ABUSE in our community during Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month in April!

Will you be a CAC community ambassador? You can help fight child abuse in Smith County with your purchase of a custom designed pinwheel for your yard or office!

The TJC Art Club is our partner in pinwheel madness! The 30” wooden pinwheels, each one uniquely designed and hand painted by TJC art students and children currently served at CAC, are being sold now for April delivery.

We want to grow this garden of awareness in the coming years by selling additional pinwheels and asking supporters to plant them annually.

Pinwheels may be purchased with a stem to be “planted” in the yard at your home or business or may be adapted for hanging on the door.

Order your custom pinwheel online HERE. Deliveries will be scheduled for the first week of April.
