Children Advocacy Centers recognized

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – With child abuse cases on the rise, organizations that work to protect children are more crucial than ever.

Some of them were recognized Tuesday night for their efforts.

Children's Advocacy Centers of Georgia held a reception at Doublegate Country Club in Albany.

Each day, there are 40 new cases of child abuse in Georgia. Without organizations such as Albany's Lily Pad, innocent victims would not get the critical care they need.

"They're grassroots organizations and the only  way they sustain themselves is because of community support and we're here to thank the community for support children's advocacy centers and the children of Georgia," said Cynthia Howell, Children Advocacy Centers of Georgia CEO.

Several local and state elected leaders were at the event to show their support for trying to eradicate child abuse.
