I AM JANE DOE. I AM ONE OF OVER 11,000 CHILDREN WHO WERE REPORTED AS ABUSED IN DENVER COUNTY LAST YEAR. THE DENVER CHILDREN'S ADVOCACY CENTER STOOD BY MY SIDE AND FOUGHT FOR ME - RESTORING MY HOPE.

Every thirty-eight minutes, a report of child abuse and neglect is made in Denver County. To the general public, these children are simply Jane Doe or John Doe. This anonymity protects the child, but also makes it easy to distance ourselves from the crisis of child abuse.

On Friday, July 30th, in the City Park Pavilions, we will read the names of all 11,418 children reported as abused in Denver County last year. Each name read is a real child who has experienced an unthinkable trauma; to protect their identities, we will replace their real names with ‘Jane Doe’ and ‘John Doe,’ reminding our community that there are real children and stories behind each name. DCAC will be there all day spreading awareness about this critical issue while highlighting our expert response and encouraging our community to join in our work. 

Please join us in reading these names. Register at this link.  

   

These children cannot fight for themselves. We have to fight for them.,

With your help, DCAC coordinates a heroic team of experts, working every day to restore hope to these victims' lives. We help over 8,500 kids and non-offending family members each year. We partner with Child Protection, law enforcement, the District Attorney's Office, public schools and Denver Health to ensure that justice is served, and the victims are safe and protected. We provide trauma-focused therapy and support to children and their families throughout the journey.

Our forensic interviewers, therapists, and family advocates can't do this work alone. But together, we can help protect and rebuild the lives of Jane and John Doe.
