Your donation helps a child overcome trauma, and makes a lasting change in their lives.
You can change their entire future.

2020 is our twentieth anniversary of
helping children heal.
Be a partner in hope for $20 a month in 2020, by setting up a recurring monthly donation.
Join us in our mission to prevent and reduce the trauma of child abuse, and give children back their childhood.

Every child deserves a life free from the effects of trauma.  Your support, no matter the size, will help sustain essential services for traumatized children in our community. Now, and in the future.

As a G.E.M. recurring donor you will make an impact for our kids year-round!

Without effective therapeutic intervention, many child victims of abuse will suffer ongoing or long-term physical and mental health consequences that may impact them and others throughout their lifetimes. Your support can help break the cycle of abuse.

Here’s what your dollars can do:

  • Give children a safe and comfortable place to share traumatic experiences of abuse.
  • Improve the chances of prosecution for the perpetrator through that child’s statement.
  • Provide therapy for victims and their families for as long as they need it.
  • Offer support for the involved caregivers for the duration of the case.
  • Restore childhood and hope.

Your support is making the difference in the life of a local child.

This transaction will appear on your monthly credit card statement.

Your credit card will be charged on the same date each month as the original charge.

Your payment may be changed at anytime and it will remain in effect until the date you choose or you notify the Carousel Center that you wish to change or suspend the payment, the Carousel Center will make this change in a reasonable amount of time to fulfill your request.
