To raise funds in support of:

  • Childhelp’s Alice C. Tyler Village near Culpeper, VA, including the Equine Therapy Program.  The Village is a residential treatment facility which provides a safe and nurturing environment for severely abused and neglected children.
  • Childhelp’s National Child Abuse Hotline (1-800-4-A-CHILD), a 24/7 intervention lifeline staffed by master level crisis counselors offering life-saving information and resources. 

Founded in 1959 by Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson, Childhelp is one of the largest and oldest national non-profit organizations dedicated to the treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect.  92 cents of every dollar is invested in Childhelp programs which directly serve abused children and their families, focusing on meeting the children’s physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs.
