The Awareness Center, Inc. has been inundated with phone calls and emails from survivors, parents and others concerned individuals with cases where someone has been sexually victimized. We have had so many people contacting us we are having an extremely difficult time keeping up with the demand.
At this time we are purely a part-time volunteer based organization. We are working on finding the funding necessary so that we may be able to hire staff. Due to this human power crunch we have been forced to create a waiting list to help individuals who contact us for help. Please be patient with us. Your call and e-mails are important to us. 

Please consider becoming a financial supporter of The Awareness Center, Inc.  We are a non-profit organization with 501c3 status with the Internal Revenue Service.
