Chocolate Fest 2013 Announced! April 27, 2013 from 12 pm to 3 pm
Please join the Gulf Coast Kid’s House Board of Directors for Chocolate Fest 2013. We will present our 10th annual chocolate lover’s extravaganza on Saturday, April 27 at Cordova Mall.
This chocolate is for a cause. By participating in the 10th Annual Chocolate Fest, you are helping to raise funds that ensure child victims of abuse and neglect receive timely, effective and streamlined treatment. At Gulf Coast Kid’s House, we facilitate a collaborative response to the abuse cases; ensuring that medical exams, recorded interviews, prosecution, and mental health counseling occur in one child-friendly facility. This “one-stop” concept greatly reduces the trauma children experience and leads to better case outcomes. In 2012, GCKH provided services to approximately 2000 child victims of abuse and neglect. Please consider joining us for Chocolate Fest 2013. This annual event brings much needed awareness and support to GCKH and child abuse issues.
GCKH serves a critical role in our community, giving abused children a safe, child-centered place to report the abuse they have suffered and providing timely, effective assistance designed to address the specific trauma each child has experienced. Through this coordinated effort, children and families experience reduced trauma and better case coordination, leading to better case outcomes.
