Kids Caring for Kids

Delavan, Wisc. – St. Andrew Parish School students recently completed a service project collecting much needed items for the Tree House of the Walworth County Alliance for TreeHouseChildren.

 The Walworthy County Alliance for Children and their new child advocacy center, the Tree House provides a safe place for children who may have been abused or neglected. In this one location a team of specially trained professionals investigate cases of child abuse to help children and their families. Studies show that using child advocacy centers for a collaborative apporach to investigation and prosecution saves money, results in faster charges against perpetrators and increases successful prosecutions. Since April 2013, the Tree House has received over 1,000 referrals alleging abuse and negelct of children, with more than 300 children having forensic interviews.

For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 18:10)
