Doing just what the organization’s name implies, Advocates For Children & Families is hosting its second annual breakfast fundraiser to benefit its Cherish program, which provides intervention and rehabilitation services to victims of intimate violence.
The breakfast is from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Aug. 25 at the Delaware Township Community Building, 9090 E. 131st St. Individual tickets are $60 and can be purchased at AFCFIndiana.org/events/upcoming-events.
During breakfast, AFCF team members involved with child abuse cases, and specifically their internet crimes division, will give a presentation on the organization’s work and highlight its partnerships with local law enforcement.
“We’re kind of focusing on all of the good that law enforcement does and how they’re involved with our team and what we do,” AFCF Executive Director Wendy Haberstock said. “The fact that we’ve got so much stuff going on in the media about the things law enforcement have to encounter, we’re kind of focusing on that and the trauma treatment that we provide, which is kind of a new thing. That’s where the dollars are going, to our trauma care for all of the kids we work with here.”
