Childhelp exists to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of abused, neglected and at-risk children. We focus our efforts on advocacy, prevention, treatment and community outreach.
Childhelp Wasatch Front hopes to raise funds and collaborate with other agencies to help realize its short-term goals including:
- Creating and distributing art therapy bags for displaced children and those recovering from abuse
- Developing an art therapy program as a resource for local organizations
- Establishing Childhelp’s “Be Safe, Speak Up” awareness program in Utah schools
The chapter’s long-term goal is to work with others to build a residential treatment facility (known as a village) in Utah that offers comprehensive treatment programs for severely abused and at-risk children.
We also want to be a part of the education and awareness of what child abuse is and is not. If more people were aware that what they are doing is abuse, they may not do it so easily. So therefore we believe that awareness and education are key to this horrible debilitating behavior that is crippling so many.
Our goal is to help these children experience the life they deserve—one filled with love. Our principal mission is to provide them with an environment of love and kindness and the best possible treatment so they will see how special they truly are.
Together we will accomplish much for many.
