Over the past ten years the Children’s Christmas Train, a 100% volunteer driven organization, has contributed more than $200,000 to child-focused community organizations including: Children’s Safety Center, Circle of Life Hospice Children’s Bereavement Program, Beau Foundation, KIDCARE, Kids First, and Northwest Arkansas Children’s Shelter.
The charity that will benefit from your support in 2014 is The Children’s Safety Center.
The Children’s Safety Center utilizes funding received from Children’s Christmas Train to positively impact the lives of the alleged child victims of physical and sexual abuse who are brought to the center by providing food, clothing and other necessities. The Children’s Safety Center focuses on ensuring that alleged child victims are receiving the services they need to begin their healing process and enable the child and families to get through the investigation process. Efforts among different agencies are coordinated so the child’s needs are met in a discreet, comforting, and nonthreatening manner, making the process more efficient and less traumatizing for the child. Neither the children nor any member of their family is ever charged for any of the services they receive at the CSC.
