The mission of The Dragonfly House Children’s Advocacy Center:
To reduce the devastating long-term effects that all forms of child abuse have on children, their families and society through immediate, coordinated, child focused services, education, and advocacy.
The Dragonfly House provides services free of charge to the children and families we work with. Your donation ensures that we can continue offering high-quality, comprehensive services for as long as needed.
