Executive Director,
Children’s Advocacy Center of Benton CountyBeverly Engle

We opened our doors nearly 15 years ago with the mission of providing a new way of handling child abuse cases in Benton County. The first year we saw 70 children and when we were down to $140 in our checking account, we were able to secure venture grant funding for $10,000 from the United Way. Since becoming a United Way agency we have seen over 7,000 children at the CAC, and we have always known that the monthly grant support was one donation we could faithfully count on through many transitions. This security and support provided us with credibility to build our reputation within the community to grow our base so today we can continue to provide quality services to child abuse victims and their families.
