From a Dawson Place press release.

Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center was recently selected by Amazon as its first beneficiary of their new community support program called Local Love.

“Amazon Local Love has turned our non-profit building from beige to beautiful for the young child abuse victims that we serve – creating a more welcoming environment for the welcoming services that are already here,” said Dawson Place Board Member Mark Roe.

Over the summer, materials, professionals, and 100+ volunteers descended upon Dawson Place to repaint the interior of our building, upgrade bathrooms, and improve our child interview recording equipment - logging over 450 volunteer hours.

Now Amazon is spreading the word about the difference Dawson Place makes in the lives of the sexually and physically abused children and their families who are served by Dawson Place.

Amazon has created a Local Love website complete with videos and stories that feature the Dawson Place Local Love project; it also gives the community an opportunity to give directly to DAWSON PLACE.

Dawson Place would like to thank Amazon Local Love, and all the project volunteers for their outstanding support.

We appreciate this opportunity to raise awareness of child abuse, to help those who need protection and healing and invite the community to become part of the solution to child abuse.

With your help, we can create a brighter future for everyone in our community.

“The Amazon Local Love website represents untapped potential for Dawson Place to reach so many more people that we can alone. It is a gateway for anyone who needs our help, and for anyone who wants to help,” said Dawson Place Executive Director Lori Vanderburg.

Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center is located in Everett, WA.  We deliver every service available to child victims of sexual assault, physical abuse, and neglect so that the children and their families only have to go to one location to get everything they need to heal.
