Davis House for Child Advocacy

The Williamson County Association for Family and Community Education (WCA-fce), is requesting the following donations for the Davis House: individual juice boxes and snack packs, reading books, coloring books, crayons, colored pencils, DVDs, puzzles, toys, and new stuffed animals (preferably teddy bears).

The WCA-fce chose to partner with the Davis House in June 2015 in conjunction with their County Cultural Arts theme of “Sugar and Spice, Let’s Be Nice”. The mission of the Child Advocacy Center is to combat child abuse by coordinating services to children and their families in crisis and providing community education focused on prevention and early intervention. Davis House encompasses a four-county service area which comprises the 21st Judicial District. While its primary office is in Franklin serving Williamson County, there is also a satellite office in Hohenwald that provides most of the services for Hickman, Lewis and Perry counties.

The donation for the Davis House is a way for the WCA-fce to introduce the Grassland community to the organization of Family and Community Education. Family and Community Education (fce) is an organization of volunteers who work together to build strong families and communities. Educational materials are created and utilized to strengthen knowledge and skills. Resources are provided to develop leadership skills, enabling people to make a difference. Fce strives to make our communities a better place in which to live.
