With the support from our sponsors, the Northeast Arkansas Children's Advocacy Center is hosting a virtual fundraiser July 14-17th to raise funds for child abuse victims in our area.
Child abuse doesn’t stop during a pandemic. Even during the COVID-19 crisis, our center remains open and continues to serve children. As hard as it is to hear, child abuse is more prevalent than you think... and is also a trial we must overcome.
Many children know their home as a safe place, but for some it’s a dangerous place of abuse and neglect. School was cancelled due to the pandemic and school personnel make up the majority of reports called into the child abuse hotline. Therefore, reports have declined... but child abuse is still happening. The NEACAC is expecting a major increase in child abuse reports when schools resume this year. We are preparing the best we can, but we need your help. We believe that with your help, we can lessen the impact of coronavirus on our mission of providing services to child abuse victims. Thank you for your support during this challenging time for our organization and community as a whole.

When a child receives the services they need to heal, they grow into healthy functioning adults that will one day take our place as community members and leaders. The future of Northeast Arkansas is in our hands. Here are some things to remember when donating...
Each dollar donated and each auction item sold will benefit the NEACAC and our efforts to lessen the impact that COVID-19 has had on child abuse in our community. July 17th marks our 2020 Day of Giving. On this day, we are accepting monetary donations. Donors will have the option to donate once or arrange a monthly donation.
Our online auction items were kindly donated by some of your favorite local businesses of Northeast Arkansas. The businesses that donated these items, along with those of you that purchase them are considered a hero to many children that visit our center daily. You are bettering a young life, strengthening a family, and creating a brighter and healthier future for our community.
