Each day, 13 children are reported abused or neglected in Montgomery County- 13 children who have to relive their nightmares as they tell their painful stories to those who will and need to listen. It’s for the worst of these cases that CARE House exists. Since its inception in 1999, CARE House has served over 9,000 families who have been affected by abuse.
The CARE House facility provides a child-centered atmosphere for community partners to come together and serve these families. The layout and design of the building helps put children and families at ease during their visit. The bright colors, natural sunlight, nature –themed rooms and children’s activities give children a sense that this is a good, safe place for them during a very scary time.
The CARE in CARE House stands for Collaboration, Advocacy, Response and Education. It is by these four pillars that CARE House operates.
