Preventing abuse

SAVE presidentFebruary 11, 2014 

SAVE (Sexual Assault Victim Education Inc.) is the proud recipient of a $3,000 grant from Central Coast Funds for Children. SAVE will use this grant to further our work in the prevention of child sexual abuse in our community.

SAVE provides a nonthreatening personal safety curriculum, “Talking About Touching,” free of charge to any interested childcare program or preschool in SLO County. This is an exciting time of expansion for SAVE, as we currently have more standing requests for the “Talking About Touching” curriculum than we have funds to fulfill them. This grant will allow us to provide approximately 10 new childcare programs with this important safety information. We are so grateful to our community for its continued support in helping us keep our children safe from sexual abuse.

Central Coast Funds for Children provides invaluable financial support to the nonprofits who work to help children in our community. We couldn’t do it without them. Thank you so much, CCFC!
