Through 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.

Last year we helped nearly 5,000 children and family members regain hope.
