The Mission and Purpose of Davis House
Davis House Child Advocacy Center opened in September 2000 to provide a safe, child-friendly place for children to tell their story and receive healing services. Davis House served 530 children from our four county service area in FY20. The mission of Davis House is to provide investigative, advocacy, family support, and therapeutic services to children who have experienced sexual or significant physical abuse or some other traumatic event, as well as trauma informed community education, designed to guide our towns and civic spaces to be safer and more resilient for everyone. Child abuse does not just affect the child. Once disclosure is made, the entire family is in crisis. Our dual goal: to treat the child and the family as they heal from the trauma of abuse; and to educate caregivers and our collaborative partners in order to better protect children.

What's a Button Worth to You?
Each child that comes to our centers chooses a button for the Button Jar. Since each button represents a child, at Davis House, a single button is worth everything! It costs $1,500 to provide services to each child we serve. Sponsor a child today to make sure the children in our community get the help that they need and deserve! #OneButtonOneChild
