Thank you to CAC supporters

On behalf of the Bennington County Child Advocacy Center I would like to thank the voters of Bennington for supporting our $2,500 appropriation. Although we have been working with Bennington County children for 27 years, this is our first time on the ballot.

Over the course of the 2015 and 2016 school years we are on target to provide abuse prevention programming to over 600 SVSU students at no cost to the schools; as well as provide training in signs and symptoms of child sexual abuse to over 450 teachers, para-educators, school administrators, early education and childcare providers.

In 2015, we supported 135 children during the investigation and judicial process when there were allegations of child sexual abuse.
