Ellis County Children's Advocacy Center dba The Gingerbread House

The Ellis County Children's Advocacy Center dba "The Gingerbread House" provides a child-friendly environment for the child victims and their non-offending family members and coordinates the intervention process reducing further trauma to the child. The center's goal is to optimize the investigative and prosecution process; provide quality legal, psychological, social and medical services to abused children and to heighten community awareness.
We need an updated recording system for our Interview room where the forensic interview of the child is conducted and the Multi-Disciplinary Team members watch the interview in the Team Room. We also need work completed on our building inside and outside as the building is now 7 1/2 years old; clean the carpet, paint walls, power wash the outside of the building, re-seal the concrete floor in the family area. We also need silent auction items for our annual 15th Annual Chili Cook-Off and Barn Dance which is held in February. We also need donated snack items for the teens counseling group and the parents counseling group.
