 Elissa Malter Schwartz

The Board of Directors of the Tree House Child Advocacy Center of Montgomery County is pleased to introduce Elissa Malter Schwartz, as the first executive director of the organization. Elissa is responsible for the overall strategic and operational responsibility for The Tree House CAC, leading its staff as they execute its mission and vision to be the leading advocate in the prevention and healing of child sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect.

Elissa has been a dedicated professional and lay leader focusing on advocacy, violence prevention and private/public collaboration in the Washington DC area for the past 25 years. She was a 2011 Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Fellow, a leadership development program for executive directors of agencies serving disadvantaged Maryland residents.

Giving Tuesday this year is on December 1, 2020, and the Tree House CAC needs your support now more than ever!


This year has been a challenging one for the Tree House with the loss of our annual fundraising event, the Tree House Tour de Cookie and the need to move all our therapy sessions online. The effort to serve abused and neglected children has been difficult given the new health guidelines, but the Tree House CAC continues to persevere as child abuse and trauma does not stop due to a pandemic.


However, the we cannot continue to do the work we do serving Montgomery county’s abused and neglected children alone. We cannot continue to grow and expand our services and resources without generous supporters like you!


This Giving Tuesday give the gift of hope and healing to a child of abuse and/or neglect. Give them the ability to not only survive childhood trauma, but to thrive in spite of it.


Your donation on December 1, 2020 will help an abused and/or neglected child receive the medical, forensic, therapy, and advocacy services they need to grow into happy and healthy adults.


Your generosity during this difficult time will be greatly appreciated and will have a great impact on our organization, and most importantly the children we serve.
