Throughout the year, the Center for Prevention of Abuse participates in and hosts a variety of special events and fundraisers. We invite you to mark your calendars, join us, and help us build a safe and peaceful community. All funds raised stay local and go directly toward client services.

Spread holiday cheer by adopting a CFPA family during the holiday season. Each year, generous members of our community purchase gifts for families served by CFPA who are in need. A “family” might be a single person, a senior, a parent/guardian with children, or other. Donors can indicate the size of family for whom they would like to purchase gifts and help. Donations of gift bags, wrapping paper, tissue paper, and other wrapping items are greatly appreciated. If you are unable to adopt a family but would like to contribute to items from the General Wish List, click here. If you would like to adopt a family this season or would like more information, please contact Celsy Martindale by Friday, November 9 at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 309-691-0551.
