)-- The Clay House Children's Advocacy Center offers services for children who have been victims of sexual and/or physical abuse. April is National Child Abuse Prevention month, a time set aside by the Federal and Local Governments to acknowledge the importance of preventing child abuse. On April 6th, Clay House Children’s Center will be hosting activities to educate, advocate and raise awareness on Child Abuse issues. Clay House Children’s Center will also be using these events to raise funds to continue assisting child victims in the Bessemer Cut-Off division of Jefferson County. With one in four girls and one in six boys falling victim to sexual abuse before they turn 18, the Clay House Children’s Center is an extremely valuable organization for many area youth and families.
The activities for the day include “Cruisin’ for the Cut-Off,” the 2nd annual charity motorcycle ride; “Crusade for the Cut-Off” the walk will begin at Historical DeBardeleben Park in Downtown Bessemer; “Combined Campaign” Mayors from the Cut-Off Division of Jefferson County have been invited to sign a proclamation recognizing April as Child Abuse Prevention month; “Concert for the Cut-Off” The Legendary Gip Gipson, Randy Buell, Earl "Guitar" Williams, and Robert Cunningham will be providing free entertainment at Debardeleben Park to help bring awareness to child abuse.
Clay House Children’s Center would love for everyone to come out and enjoy the music while also learning about how you can help prevent child abuse. Clay House Children’s Center will be selling blue bows to be displayed by businesses and individuals showing their support for Child Abuse Prevention.
The Clay House Children’s Center is a nonprofit agency, initiated by the Bessemer Cut-Off District Attorney's Office. In an effort to minimize the victimization of child abuse victims, The Clay House Children’s Center facilitates a multidisciplinary team approach to prevention, intervention, investigation, prosecution and medical and therapeutic treatment of child abuse victims.
