Through onsite collaborations with the Crimes Against Children Unit of Louisville Metro Police, Child Protective Services, U of L School of Medicine and the Commonwealth’s Attorney office, staff at our best in class Kosair Charities Child Advocacy Center stops and helps children and families through the trauma of sexual abuse.

Be a ‘friend,’ give monthly

One of the best things you can do for the kids we serve is to give monthly! Your monthly gifts provide a sustaining fund to ensure caring service throughout a child and family’s journey from hurting to healing. A monthly gift of $25 or more also qualifies you to become a “Friend of the Family,” which benefits our clients and has benefits for you. Learn more here.


Donate your magazines

Wondering what to do with your old magazines? Once read, you can donate them to the Kosair Charities Child Advocacy Center, which uses the periodicals in its observation and waiting rooms. The KCCAC uses different types of magazines for each space, so magazines for families and specifically for children are very helpful. Questions, email info@famchildplace.org.
