This chocolate is for a cause. By participating in the 15th Annual Chocolate Fest, you are helping to raise funds that ensure child victims of abuse and neglect receive timely, effective and streamlined treatment. At Gulf Coast Kid’s House, we facilitate a collaborative response to the abuse cases; ensuring that medical exams, recorded interviews, prosecution, and mental health counseling occur in one child-friendly facility. This “one-stop” concept greatly reduces the trauma children experience and leads to better case outcomes. In 2017, GCKH provided services to over 3,800 child victims of abuse and neglect. Please consider joining us for Chocolate Fest 2018. This annual event brings much needed awareness and support to GCKH and child abuse issues.

GCKH serves a critical role in our community, giving abused children a safe, child-centered place to report the abuse they have suffered and providing timely, effective assistance designed to address the specific trauma each child has experienced. Through this coordinated effort, children and families experience reduced trauma and better case coordination, leading to better case outcomes.
