Bucks CAC receives $10K grant from Foundations Community Partnership

Bucks County Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) will be able to incorporate the highly regarded EFI (extended forensic interviewing) model at all three of its Bucks offices to further protect children who may be victims of abuse, thanks to a $10,000 grant from Foundations Community Partnership (FCP).

FCP’s support enables Bucks CAC, whose operations are overseen by nonprofit Network of Victim Assistance, to enhance its services to provide EFI for very young children, children with physical, developmental or cognitive disabilities, and children who may have severe or multiple traumatic events.

“Across the country, research and experience have shown that children are often reluctant and resistant to disclose abuse due to the complex dynamics and stigma of child abuse,” says Leslie Slingsby, LSW, director of the CAC. “While it is challenging to keep children physically safe when they are reluctant to disclose abuse, it can be even more challenging to keep them mentally safe during the disclosure process. The EFI process helps us do that.”

by June Portnoy

The event honored 12 non-profit community programs that are making a difference in the lives of local children throughout Bucks County.

The organizations were awarded monetary grants of $3,000 each.

“Foundations is proud to offer community grants for the 15th year in a row through our Partnership in Youth Services Program,” said Foundations Executive Director, Ron Bernstein. “It is very rewarding to support the Bucks County non-profits that are fulfilling the health and human service needs of our young people.”

Athletes Helping Athletes in Richboro will use its funding for a new therapeutic equestrian program for special needs children, who will be paired with students throughout Bucks County to experience therapeutic riding. 

Bowman’s Hill Wildlife Preserve in New Hope will use the grant for its Children’s Reading Program, which serves more than 300 children and their families with a renewed focus on special needs children.

Each session has a unique theme for reading children’s books about the natural environment, followed by nature hikes on the trails in search of the plants and animals in the stories.

The Bucks County Children’s Museum in New Hope will use its grant to support educational programming for field trips and “Exploration for All” free open houses for children with autism spectrum disorders.

Alexa Botelho, a New Hope-Solebury student, spearheaded P.S.I.C. in 2012 when she was a sophomore.  It strives to eliminate the glorification of drugs and alcohol by promoting alternative positive alternatives. P.S.I.C works with NHS Cares to reach out to students about the consequences of drug and alcohol use.

The Council Rock Coalition for Healthy Youth in Newtown will partner with all three middle schools in the Council Rock School District to conduct a Social Norms Campaign on underage drinking prevention. The Coalition will use its grant for this campaign. 

S.A.G.E. (Senior Adults for Greater Education) in Newtown will use its grant to help Palisades School District train, place and support low-income senior volunteers in Palisades’ elementary schools. These volunteers will assist at-risk children who need academic support and social skills.
