Join Our Mission

The Friends of the Children’s Justice Center is on an unwavering mission to increase awareness and support for victims of maltreatment and their families. By providing resources regarding the signs and symptoms of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, building community partnerships and capital assets, and offering children and families a safe place during the healing process after a report has been made, The Friends of CJC is driving change through prevention — one child at a time.

Donate to the Friends of CJC to help provide the funding we need to maintain our property as a welcoming place during the healing process, make capital improvements to further our mission, and promote awareness to make our community a safer place to be a kid.

How You Can Help

Donate Necessary Items for the CJC House

Washer and Dryer:

The children who are interviewed at our home frequently need clean clothing and showers, resulting in laundry that cannot be done on site. We would welcome donations restricted to either or both of these items.

If you would like to donate a washer and/or dryer click here.

Solar lighting:

Our monument sign faces Silver Summit Parkway and indicates entry to our driveway. During the fall and winter months, it becomes difficult for families to see as the sun sets. We would welcome donations restricted to this item.

Committee members are invited to all meetings and events and can serve on all committees (excluding Executive), despite holding no voting rights.

Get to Know Our Committees

The Friends of the Children’s Justice Center Executive Committee acts as the steering committee for the entire board. The committee’s President, who also serves as the Board Chair, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer are elected every 2 years by the full board. In the President’s absence, the Vice President assumes the role of Chair.

The Friends of the Children’s Justice Center Governance Committee oversees board member recruitment, orientation, elections, board performance, and security/technology.

Primarily responsible for the accuracy of financial reports, the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center Finance Committee also oversees the Friend’s budget, establishes reserve funds, and manages investment accounts. The Treasurer is Committee Chair.

All public facing activities are handled by the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center Development Committee. It has three subcommittees: Public Relations, Events, Fundraising/Grants.
