Head Start & CCC Programs
CKCAC’s Head Start and Community Collaboration for Children (CCC) programs joined forces this past April to raise awareness during Child Abuse Awareness month. Their combined activities throughout the month of April enabled Head Start’s Nichole Burchell and Melissa Garrett to present Kentucky State Trooper Houk with a $3,000 check for the Trooper Teddy Program.
The Trooper Teddy Program enables Troopers to provide the stuffed animals to children during traumatic experiences such as a car crash, child or sexual abuse cases and also distribute to terminally ill children.
A special thanks to our Head Start and CCC programs for helping to raise Child Abuse Awareness throughout our communities. Awareness is the first step towards prevention.
