An Ode To Children Everywhere
On average the Warren Washington C.A.R.E. Center sees over 300 children impacted by child abuse annually. Despite this already staggering statistic, we know there are still many children who don’t receive help because they are too afraid to speak out. They fear they are alone or worse, that no one will believe them.
This is not the case. We want children in our community to know that they are not alone.
We believe them and we are here for them. At the C.A.R.E. Center, we have a safe space for children to talk to trained professionals so they can get help and get back to the business of being a child.
In March 2021, we commissioned a local artist to paint a mural as an ode to the almost 5000 amazing children we have served over the years. Now, every child who visits the C.A.R.E. Center will also have the opportunity to add their own mark to this symbolic piece of art. As the wall fills with color, it will act as a gentle reminder for future children that they are not alone, that many brave children came before them and that there is hope at the C.A.R.E. Center.
Special thanks to R. Brewer for designing and painting this beautiful piece.
