We are deeply saddened to cancel our DC Spring Gala on April 25th, but know it is in the best interest for the health and safety of families.
The Annual Childhelp Shining Stars Gala raises crucial fundraising dollars for our lifesaving work in the Greater Washington region, supporting the Childhelp Residential Treatment Village in Virginia and the Childhelp Child Abuse Hotline office in Washington DC. Not only does child abuse not rest during times of crisis, but we know it goes up. Our Hotline is already responding to a double digit rise in calls related to the pandemic. Being safe from coronavirus can mean being trapped at home with an abuser, and abusers tend to act out even more in times of stress and economic uncertainty.
Please help us respond to this crisis by donating to Childhelp’s programs in our region. Simply click the donate button to the right and know you are continuing our lifesaving work with a 100% tax deductible contribution.
