As National Child Abuse Prevention Month draws to a close, we want to thank everyone who made it a success!

A Child's Voice was selected as the recipient of proceeds from the Bud Wiley Memorial Golf Tournament hosted by Walton EMC. You can read more in this month's Realite newsletter. Thanks, Walton EMC! We are thankful for your support.
On Sunday, A Child's Voice staff and friends enjoyed The Gwinnett Braves game. In recognition of the center being selected as a grant recipient in September 2014, staff members were taken onto the field and presented a check. Thank you to the Gwinnett Braves for a fun day, and for supporting our center!
Last week, Teressa Swetham and the Young Women's Group from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints brought us bags of blankets and toys to give to children who come to the center. This is the second year that we have received items from this group. These "comfort items" are given to children during their appointments at the center to help them feel safe and comfortable. Thank you to Teressa and all of the young women!
We are thrilled to announce that we have received re-accreditation status through the National Children's Alliance! You can read more about the process and what re-accreditation means in our official press release below.

Thanks so much to Keller Williams and Kares 4 Kids for their donation of 50 soft and snuggly bears to our center to be used as comfort items! Janice Baldwin, a local Keller Williams Realtor, visited our center to take a tour and give us the bears. We are so appreciative of our supportive community! Thanks Janice, Keller Williams and Kares 4 Kids.
