We need your support now more than ever to help abused children in our community.
Yes, the Community for Children's Justice, the friends board for the Summit County Children's Justice Center (CJC), recently purchased a dedicated property for the CJC. We need to move out of our temporary location and into the new space this September 2019 but are unable to relocate until after we complete required renovations. The cost of the construction is sponsored by an incredible anonymous donor and we have raised over $1M to purchase the property but need an additional $750K to pay off the mortgage so we can open the doors to serve abused children in the new facility this fall.
We have to relocate out of our temporary space by September 2019 but first need $750K to pay off the mortgage for our new home. You can help.
The Community for Children’s Justice is a non-profit supporting Summit County Children’s Justice Center by strengthening the overall support system with a fully equipped campus for child abuse victims and their families.
Below are pictures of our new home which we need to open by September 2019.
The Problem We are Supporting:
Utah has the highest reported incidence of child abuse in the country. 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18.
Only 2% of the perpetrators are a stranger to the victim, which means the other 98% are friends, relatives, caretakers, or family acquaintances.
Sadly, our mountain town is no exception to these statistics.
Fortunately there is a place where families can begin to put their lives back together. Since its inception in 2012, the Summit County Children’s Justice Center (CJC) has served over 1000 children of abuse and their families and the number of cases continues to increase annually.
Child abuse affects EVERY area in Summit County. It occurs regardless of socioeconomic status, educational background or ethnicity and the incidence is increasing as our community grows.
While the CJC provides a great service to Summit County, the office space we operate in is temporary and will no longer be available in September of 2019. We currently operate out of a county building next to the DMV that lacks the privacy required to heal with dignity, and lacks the space to effectively provide the mental health services to help children heal.
