News from The Tree House CAC - August 2020
Preparing For the Fall 2020 School Year
The Montgomery County Public School system has confirmed virtual learning will continue for the Fall 2020 semester until January 29th, 2020, or until state and local health officials deem it is safe for students to return to the classrooms in-person. When the pandemic first began, and schools closed back in March, many families were concerned about the lack of technology and resources available for their children. Montgomery County Public Schools will provide Chromebooks, and WiFi hotspots for all students who need them. Please refer to your child's school for more information.

The Tree House CAC is Working to Keep our
Clients and Staff Safe as We Return Back to the Office
Here is How You Can Help!
The Tree House CAC is dedicated to reducing trauma and promoting healing for child and adolescent victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and/or neglect through the services we provide. We serve the Montgomery County area and all our services are free of charge.
Due to COVID-19 our facility has been closed for the past few months. That means several children were not afforded the opportunity to tell their story in a child-friendly environment, and probably had to repeat their account of the abuse multiple times. As we approach the Fall 2020 school year, the number of cases we receive will most likely increase.
In order to reopen our doors to our clients, we have to ensure the safety of all involved. That includes equipping staff and clients with proper personal protection equipment.
Please support the Tree House CAC by donating to our COVID-19 Relief Fund. Your donation will purchase essential items, such as masks, face shields, exam gowns, gloves, hand sanitizer, and cleaning supplies, and ensure our staff and clients remain safe from COVID-19.
$25 Provides a bundle of face mask for clients and staff
$35 Provides a bundle of face shields or a pack of hand sanitizers
$50 Provides a bundle of medical gowns
$100 Provides cleaning supplies for the month or physician exam supplies
