Since its’ establishment in 2004, the Children’s Resource Center (CRC) has provided refuge to more than 338 children who have experienced abuse, abandonment, trafficking, or the death of parents. We provide for their holistic needs: safety, nutrition, education, medical care (including HIV treatment), grief counseling, access to caring adults, skills training, and love. We also monitor all family relationships and, wherever possible, work to reunite these children with their families.
In January of this year, we started construction on new facilities: a boys dormitory, a girls dormitory, and a dining hall. This will allow us to expand our capacity at the CRC from 50 to 100 children. We look forward to moving into the new facility in a few weeks!
