The NETCAC offers a safe child-friendly environment to children between the ages of 2-17 who allegedly have been sexually or severely physically abused or have been a witness to a violent crime. The children who come to the NETCAC are allowed to tell their experiences in a non-leading way to a trained forensic interviewer rather than having to repeat it multiple times to multiple agencies involved in the investigation and prosecution, therefore reducing the trauma to the child.

Currently, we are able to offer these services to the 8 counties we serve free of charge, thanks to some grant assistance, financial assistance from area businesses, gifts-in-kind, donations, community support, and the CAC board members and volunteers.

Every year we provide a little help to an average of 375 children at Christmas time through Angel Tree. Our Angel Tree list consists of the children ages 0-17 yrs. (male and female) that have been interviewed that year, their (in house) siblings, and if they have a child themselves.

Do Not Deserve Abused and Neglected Things”

 

PLEASE NOTE: All items provided to the children must be NEW or HANDMADE NEW!

There are several ways you or your group (family/friends/coworkers) can help:  

To Sponsor an Angel(s) –

Each Angel tag lists their pajama size, their age, gender, favorite color, and things they like for a gift. Sponsors are asked to provide a set of pajamas along with a few gifts from their list.
*Please keep the combined total value of all these items between $60 and $100.  Remember these items must be new or handmade new.

This can be done one of 2 ways:

        • Purchase the items yourself or
        • Donate money towards the Angel and we will shop
          *Angels will be ready for sponsorship November 1st and the Unwrapped Gifts are due back to NETCAC-Winnsboro by December 1st

 To Sponsor the “Filler Table”

There are times that the Angel gift comes back only partially filled or their sibling Angel came back with a lot more items than theirs…this is when we add to the gifts from the “Filler Table”. (Good place to find these items is on the clearance rack or isles…Remember they must be new or handmade new)
