Camp HOPE California
Children who witness violence live with trauma and pain. Many go on to repeat the violence as adults that they have seen as children. So many children growing up in abusive homes end up in our juvenile justice and adult prison systems. Today, California taxpayers spend over $60,000 per year per inmate to lock up adult criminals who grew up in homes with some mix of child abuse, domestic violence, drugs, and alcohol. If we can save these children, we can break the vicious generational cycle of family violence. We need your help to save hundreds of children from the abuse they are experiencing. Your donation can give a child hope and a future.
Casey Gwinn, the founder of Camp HOPE, and a team of professionals from Family Justice Centers across California are partnering with the Alliance to send physically and sexually abused children and children exposed to domestic violence to camp every summer. Camp HOPE California operates at two venues. Camp HOPE Kidder Creek is located near Yreka, CA in a beautiful mountain camping venue near the Klamath River. Camp HOPE Bethel Ranch is located in Arroyo Grande, CA at Lopez Lake. You can help change the destiny of a child's life by sending them to camp at one of our two life changing camp locations.
Your donation of $458 will send one child to camp. $2,000 will allow five children to go to Camp HOPE. $4,000 will send 10 children to camp and give them a path to a life free of violence. Please give HOPE to a child.
Justice Legal Network
The Justice Center Legal Network funds legal assistance to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and teen dating violence. Victims come in scared and alone and we partner with the Center for Solo Practitioners (housed with the Alliance) to provide legal advice, help them get a protection order,assess their other legal needs, provide an advocate in court, and even provide a lawyer to represent them whenever possible when their abuser has a lawyer. Your donation will help provide crucial legal services to victims and their children.
