SACRED assists families with a child or children who have been sexually abused and suffered financially. When the sexual abuse of a child is reported and family has suffered a loss of income, not only must the family deal with the emotional damage to their child/children and the legal process to protect their child, they now must face the immediate reality of not having money to pay for housing, food, clothes, transportation and other necessities we all take for granted. This is where sacred comes in. They work with only accredited Child Advocacy Centers (CAC’s). When they receive an application for financial assistance from an advocate, and then Board approval, sacred will, within 24 hours, send a check to cover any shortfall the family may have for the next 30-60 days.
