With the Cape Cod Parent Resource Fair rapidly approaching we will be sharing blog posts on our participating sponsors, vendors and nonprofits. You will find out more about these amazing businesses and what they offer to our community. They will be sharing their services, advice, what challenges face our community as well as upcoming events they will be having. Make sure to check out our virtual program and resource guide ahead of the event so you can plan for what you want to see! Childcare is available as well for use during speaker panels. If you preregister for the speakers or childcare you will earn extra raffle tickets-just email us and you will receive tickets at the door! We hope to see you at the Resource Fair!
1. Tell us about your business/non profit and how it benefits local families?
Children’s Cove is the Child Advocacy Center for the Cape and the Islands. We provide a multi-disciplinary response to child victims of sexual abuse, severe physical abuse, witness to domestic violence and commercial sexual exploitation. We also provide professional training to organizations, and community education for parents and caregivers. All services are free.
2. Where is it located?
We are located in Hyannis but serve all of the Cape and Islands.
3. What is your favorite thing about our community?
How many organizations come together to support children and families who have experienced tremendous difficulty and do so to promote hope and optimism.
4. How else do you get involved with the community?
We provide free talks, education and training throughout the community. We have volunteers that raise awareness and create connections to us to help provide services and support to those in need.
5. What do you think are the biggest challenges facing parents in our community?
Understanding that regardless of the challenges that they may be facing, it’s ok to ask for help. Regardless of your background, needs, or fears there is an organization that can and WANTS to help. No matter what, you are not alone.
6. What is your favorite memory or story over the years involving you and your business?
In 2017 we celebrated our 20th anniversary of serving the children and families of Cape Cod & Islands and helping them find their healthiest outcome no matter what they’ve experienced. We love what we do.
7. What advice would you give parents and caregivers in our community?
Have conversations with your children about body safety, prevention, and anything else that is important. Start those conversations EARLY and have them often. It’s never too early to start, but it can feel like it is too late to start.
8. Do you have any specials, events, or anything else taking place this upcoming year that our parents should know about?
We are always available for parents, caregivers, teens and youth to call us for support. Don’t hesitate!
