    In this beloved community we call home, we safeguard those with no voice: the animals, the open spaces, the less fortunate. But another vulnerable sector needs our help: our child abuse victims. Since its 2012 inception, the Summit County Children’s Justice Center has served over 800 child abuse victims and their families. We provide the first point of contact in the investigative process and offer a safe and nurturing environment to ensure kids can recover.

    The Problem? We still do not have a place to call ‘home’. We are currently located in a cramped space next to the DMV. We can do better!

    Sunday, June 25, from 4-8 p.m., come to our inaugural Pig Roast at the City Park Pavilion (next to the Miners Hospital). All proceeds will help fund a fully-equipped campus for Summit County child abuse victims and their families. There will be live music by Lash LaRue, beverages by PC Brewing and a roasted pig. Register now at http://www.ccjsc.org/events ( $50 pp/$150 per family).

    Kids can recover. You can help — and pig out in the process!

    By Brenda Weinberg, CCJ Board Member:

    April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and the pinwheel is the national symbol for child abuse prevention. We will be showing our support and celebrating the lives we’ve touched and those who have touched ours by honoring them with a pinwheel – the national symbol for the great childhoods all children deserve because our children are our future. Look for Pinwheels throughout Park City and Summit County.

    We invite you to our open house Wednesday, April 19, 2017 from 5-6 PM. We will be showing off the new medical room and want to thank the Women's Giving Fund for their generous donation and Melissa for her hard work in setting it up. On February 15th we welcomed the Women’s Giving Fund grant committee to the Children’s Justice Center, and Dr. Laskey was there to explain the medical examination process and the impact the grant has made for our victims. Thank you WGF and Dr. Laskey!

    • We would like to thank everyone who donated to us and the other local nonprofit organizations during the Live PC Give PC celebration. The total this year for Live PC Give PC was over $33,000, and the CJC/CCJ came in 3rd place in our category. We look forward to acts of kindness and generosity this given season.
    • We are in the process of selecting an architect to design and create a rendering of the future home of the Children’s Justice Center. We can’t wait to show everyone!
    • We are planning an event for May, so keep your ears open for an announcement coming soon!
