Why You Should Run For and With Us...
Norfolk Advocates for Children is a partnership of public and private agencies that work together collaboratively to help children who experience physical, sexual and domestic abuse, sexual exploitation, trafficking and/or have been witness to violence. The NAC offers an immediate response to cases and provides a child-friendly, culturally sensitive and multidisciplinary approach to families. The NAC also provides community training and advocacy on issues related to child abuse prevention and treatment.
All proceeds from this years’ race will be used to provide critical training for treatment providers in Norfolk County who provide therapeutic services to the child victims and families the NAC serves. These services are vital first steps in a child’s ability to heal from the trauma they have experienced. Our mission is to ensure there are appropriate and comprehensive clinical services available to all children and families we work with.
