Kids’ Harbor and Going Blue to Raise Awareness on Chid Abuse Prevention

Kids’ Harbor is an accredited child advocacy center serving the Lake of the Ozarks area in Central Missouri, Fort Leonard Wood and surrounding areas.

Children and their non-offending caregivers are referred by social services, juvenile authorities and law enforcement and are provide free of charge.

Their mission is to provide a child-friendly atmosphere for children who may be victims of neglect, sexual assault, physical and emotional abuse.

Working with organizations who focus on helping kids through these difficult times is one of our favorite types of projects.  During April, Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Rebecca Gordon Group recruited 20 businesses to become child abuse prevention partners, raising money in their own businesses to help support the work of Kids’ Harbor.

It was a joy to work on the GO BLUE! Campaign for April.  If you would like to support the work of Kids’ Harbor you can make an online donation here.  

Child Abuse Prevention month might be over but with 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys at risk of sexual assault before the age of 18 they need our support all year long.
