Help. Hope. Healing

Coloring Contest

Center for Children Coloring Contest! 


It’s difficult to accept that child abuse happens here. But it does. And turning a blind eye feeds the trauma and allows it to continue. The only way to end child abuse is to not turn away. To not let children navigate the darkness alone. To believe them, fight for them, love them, and uplift them.  

Because with each child we help heal, there’s hope for all.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time for our community to come together to focus on healing and justice for children and  their families who are victims of violence and sexual abuse. In support, we are hosting a Coloring Contest with our iconic Hot Air Balloon illustration. Our balloon represents the work we do as a whole uplifts the entire Grand Valley community. We are welcoming children of all ages, and throughout the community, to participate and  submit their artwork for the chance to win a locally donated gift basket!
