How You Can Help Make a Difference in the Lives of Children & Families

The CARES Institute offers help and, more importantly, hope to the thousands of children and families who experience child abuse and neglect each year. But we need your support to continue to provide and develop ground-breaking medical and mental health diagnostic and treatment services for children who have suffered sexual abuse, physical abuse or neglect.

• It costs the CARES Institute approximately $4,900 to provide evidence-based mental health therapy for one child.

• The costs for one medical exam for a child total approximately $1100.

• The costs for mental health treatment for a child total approximately $3,800.

You can be a part of the healing process by making a gift to support the Institute's work. Please also consider including the CARES Institute in your will or other estate plan.

To learn more about how your gift can help a child recover from the trauma of abuse or neglect, call Gail Forman, Senior Director of Development, at (856) 566-6635 or click here to make your donation to CARES through the Rowan University Foundation.
