Regions Foundation has partnered with Davis House Child Advocacy Center to fight child sexual abuse with a $10,000 grant for the center’s Prevention/Awareness Program.
The Davis House Child Advocacy Center mission is to combat child abuse by coordinating services to children and their families in crisis and providing community education focused on prevention and early intervention.
The grant award partially covers the costs of providing prevention training and awareness to adults in the community in an effort to better protect children from the trauma of sexual and/or severe physical abuse.
“It is possible to prevent abuse from occurring through extensive community education, awareness, and prevention training programs,” stated Executive Director for the Davis House Marcus Stamps.
“Our program is designed to train adults in the community how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. This grant from Regions Foundation allows us to significantly increase the reach of our program, and in doing so, to better protect the children in our community from significant trauma.”
Williamson County President for Regions Marty Martin recognizes the importance of community involvement and support for local organizations like Davis House.
“Our associates live and work in this community, our clients are here, and it just makes good sense to help out where and when we can. Our associates and our company are engaged with many organizations. We saw an opportunity to help fight child abuse through Davis House and their Prevention Program, and we utilized Regions Foundation to help fund a program we think can make a positive impact. These are our children that we are protecting, and we are glad we can make a difference.”
