Mission Kids is a child advocacy center located in Montgomery County, PA that is dedicated to achieving healing and justice for victims of child abuse. According to the Mission Kids website, “1 in 4 girls & 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before the age of 18.” (http://missionkidscac.org/) Communities without child advocacy centers often provide young victims of abuse with unnecessary trauma by making them relive the past over and over again in various interviews. Mission Kids interviews abused children in a child-friendly environment by a specialist in order to protect each child’s emotional and physical well-being. After the initial interview process, Mission Kids continues to help abused children with the emotional healing process.
The Mission Possible Fundraiser’s success has earned Sara L. McGeever, a reputation as a reliable and caring family lawyer in Philadelphia. Sara L. McGeever’s community involvement also includes acting as the Attorney/Guard Ad Litem for the Montgomery County Child Advocacy Project, board member for Mission Kids, and Chair of Young Friends of Mission Kids.
