You Can Help Make a Difference

The Essex Children's Advocacy Center is a public private partnership. We are a registered 501c)(3) non profit organization that relies on donations to offset operating costs of our center in Lawrence, Massachusetts as well as services we provide to children and youth who are identified as victims of abuse. It is through the community and individuals like you, who donate and volunteer that make differences in children's lives. Your online donation is a secure, easy way to continue our programs and services in helping child victims of abuse and their families. Our services would be greatly enhanced from your donation. Thank you for your donation and fighting with us against child abuse.
