To celebrate the Child Protection Center's 40th year of service, chairwoman of CPC’s Advisory Council, Alisa Pettingell, proposed the idea of recruiting 40 captains with the charge of raising $10,000 each and the goal of raising $400,000 collectively. This led to the creation of an incredibly dedicated group of individuals who worked tirelessly to raise these funds to the benefit of our youth. 

The support received through the Captains' Initiative is helping them dive into the next 40 years with the determination and fight to continue reducing child abuse in our community. This has proven to be even more impactful than they could have foreseen prior to the difficulties surrounding coronavirus. 

From January 1st though April 30th the Child Protection Center was able to accomplish: 750 therapy sessions, 238 specalized interviews, medical evaluations and consultations, PSCA presented 17,443 participants and SVP conducted 263 family visits.
