On the evening news we constantly hear about cases where an adult has abused a child in some manner. It is absolutely impossible to comprehend how any adult could abuse a child. However, it happens quite often. There is a tremendous need for organizations whose mission is to protect children. Child Protect, a group heavily involved in the battle against child abuse, was incorporated in November 1989 as the Children’s Advocacy Center. They serve Montgomery, Autauga, and Elmore counties. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit agency.
Child Protect assists the Department of Human Resources and law enforcement agencies in their investigation of child sexual abuse and child physical abuse. The evidence gathered by Child Protect during forensic interviews is turned over to the District Attorney’s office for prosecution. Currently, Child Protect serves two judicial circuits; the 15th, which is Montgomery County, and the 19th, which includes Autauga and Elmore counties. Darryl Bailey is the District Attorney for the 15th Circuit and Randall Houston is the District Attorney in the 19th Circuit. Each do a tremendous job of protecting children and we are most fortunate to have them in their offices.
Jannah Morgan Bailey is the Executive Director of Child Protect. She is truly a blessing and does a tremendous job. Child Protect is a charter member of the National Children’s Alliance, a River Region United Way partner and part of the Alabama Network of Children’s Advocacy Centers (ANCAC). Kate Vance, who is the wife of Gibson Vance, serves on the Board for Child Protect. She said: “It is a privilege to serve on the Board of Child Protect. This is an organization that plays an integral part in protecting children and getting abusers behind bars. Unfortunately, the need for their services has never been higher.”
I encourage our Alabama readers to learn more about Child Protect and find out how to help them. We cannot tolerate child abuse and must do whatever it takes to see that our children are protected. Those who abuse children must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Child Protect needs our support. Our readers can learn more about Child Protect by contacting Jannah at 935 South Perry Street, Montgomery, AL 36104 or by phone at 334-262-1220. You can also email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
