By the numbers

Every child and every family that enters our doors each year is important to us. CARE House exists because too many children and families suffer from abuse situations every year. Since opening in 1999, CARE house has served over 8600 child victims of abuse. It is our hope that through prevention and education that these numbers will someday decrease.
