The Mission of the Kentucky River Children's Advocacy Center, Inc. is to provide a comfortable, safe environment where children who have been the victims of sexual abuse and their non-offending family members may receive services from each agency involved in the investigation and prosecution of these cases. We strive to provide a location where investigations may be performed in as timely manner as possible and to link children and their families to services they may need both immediately and in the future. 


The Kentucky Child Victims’ Trust Fund (CVTF) provides funding for child sexual abuse prevention programs and provides partial reimbursement for child sexual abuse medical exams at the Care Cottage and other children’s advocacy centers across the state. The CVTF prevention activities and child advocacy programs are funded through private donations, proceeds from the purchase of “I Care About Kids” license plates and donations made through the state income tax refund check-off program.

By donating to the Care Cottage, you can help us fill our pinwheel garden! Each donation will come with a Pinwheel that includes a name of your choice and the amount donated that will be planted in our virtual pinwheel garden. "In 2008, Prevent Child Abuse America introduced the pinwheel as the new national symbol for child abuse prevention. What [their] research showed... is that people respond to the pinwheel. By its very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions. In essence, it has come to serve as the physical embodiment, or reminder, of the great childhoods we want for all children." For more information on the pinwheel and it's impact, click here. To donate and plant your virtual pinwheel, click here (please remember to check the "share my name and email with this charity" box so that we may know how to contact if you want a specific name on your pinwheel).
