Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center is there for the kids …April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

wreath 2018.jpg

With National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, it brings to light the fact that many do not realize the peril our children can experience and have to deal with right here in Northwest Florida. There are approximately 1,100 cases of child sexual and physical abuse reported annually in Okaloosa and Walton Counties, an average of three a day. Despite those big numbers, nearly 2/3 of the actual needs to help child victims go unmet due to lack of reporting to authorities

Enter the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center (ECCAC). They provide services for young child abuse victims and their families in a child-friendly environment. All support services and personnel are under one roof. There are two centers, one in Niceville in Okaloosa County, and the Pierce Family Children’s Advocacy Center in DeFuniak Springs in Walton County. Neither location provides housing for children. It is estimated that for every one child ECCAC helps, there are two children out there who are not helped.

Their Heartbreaking Stories:
…A 6-year-old sexually abused by the grandfather. 
…A 12-year-old with severe burns that were getting no attention. 
…The young child who witnessed one of their parents being brutally murdered. 

These are but a few of the many children right here in the local community that have been helped by the Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center. ECCAC not only brings all organizations together so the judicial and healing process can be easier for the children who are victims of abandonment, abuse or neglect, it also provides mental health therapy for the children involved as well as their families. 

In ECCAC’s 17-year history, right at 11,000 children have received more than 43,000 services at no cost to include mental health therapy, crisis intervention, referrals to other community providers, interviews and medicals. They raise 60% of their annual budget for the two centers through special events, donations and community-sponsored fundraisers. The remainder of monies are generated through grant requests and governmental funding.

Another major undertaking ECCAC is doing in the child abuse prevention effort, is their new program, Child Safety Matters, made possible by a grant from Impact 100. This is a state-wide initiative in elementary and middle schools. In the first five months in Okaloosa and Walton Counties alone, ECCAC has empowered 2,100 students and 2,000 relevant adults with information and strategies to prevent, recognize and respond appropriately.

Julie Hurst, ECCAC’s CEO commented, “Every year we try to create awareness of April being National Child Abuse Prevention month and the services that ECCAC can offer to child victims.  It is imperative that everyone do their part to help protect children.”

2017 Christmas Adopt-a-Family Program is FULL!

Registration is now closed.  We have filled all the families we need.  Thank you for your support!


About the program:

This program has been going on for years at the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center and is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. Won’t you help us give the gift of Christmas to some of our children and families who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford it?

We appreciate your participation in past years and look forward to hearing from you again. Providing all your information will help us match you with the ‘perfect family’ to adopt. We will get your family info to you as soon as possible, but please keep in mind that sometimes we don’t get a family until right before Christmas.

Important info to remember:

  • Due to confidentially, all items must be delivered to one of our centers. Our ECCAC elves will ensure they get to the families.
  • Once you have your unwrapped gifts together, drop them at the center you designated on your form. Drop off dates are 11am to 4pm at both centers on the following days:
    • Mon, Nov 27, Fri, Nov 29
    • Mon, Dec 4, Fri, Dec 8, Mon, Dec 11, Fri, Dec 15
  • Please do not wrap the gifts. Many parents have asked to be able to wrap their children’s gifts to feel part of the process. You are welcome to include wrapping materials in your donation.
  • If there are large or bulky items, please let us know in advance so we can make arrangements.
  • When purchasing for your family, the children are your first priority. 
  • Tips from past years
    • Gift certificates are great for teens. 
    • Gift receipts are appreciated if clothing is purchased.
    • Non-perishable food/grocery store items such as gift certificates are always appreciated. 
    • Christmas decorations are a wonderful bonus if funds allow.
  • Tax letters are available in recognition of your purchases. A copy of all your receipts with a total is required to process your letter.
  • Have fun!  Know your efforts and gifts are greatly appreciated by our families, the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center, and our partner agencies!

With your help, we will be able to help another 75 families and over 300 children have a very Merry Christmas.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
