The Dee Norton Child Advocacy Center provides hope and healing to over 1,800 children each year at no cost to the family. We are a Children’s Advocacy Center that provides assessment, treatment and support services when there is a concern about abuse. Not only are we offering much-needed services to children and families, but we are saving the community money as well. National studies indicate that the cost of providing children with coordinated care through a Child Advocacy Center saves about one-third of the cost of accessing the social, medical and legal agencies individually.
Dee Norton depends on gifts from generous individuals, organizations and companies to continue to provide the services our clients need. We appreciate both monetary and in-kind donations. Your tax-deductible donation will go directly towards helping a victim of child abuse. Thank you for considering us in your charitable giving.
You can also make an impact by purchasing items from Dee Norton’s Amazon Wish List.
Dee Norton Child Advocacy Center continues to help prevent abuse, protect children and heal families amidst the Covid-19 Outbreak. While most are at home, safely with their families, many children are not safe at home. We are still helping remotely and receiving emergency cases at our center every week. Please consider donating today to show your support for Child Abuse Prevention Month and receive a pinwheel in your email to start your virtual garden.
Children in crisis cannot wait until the end of the crisis. The services provided by Dee Norton are considered essential and we continue to conduct forensic interviews for emergencies on site at the downtown center. The challenge is how to keep everyone safe and healthy. Dee Norton is putting measures in place to conduct more forensic interviews using technology and health precautions recommended by the CDC.
You can help today with a gift that could help us purchase the equipment like tablets and a telehealth platform needed to conduct more interviews while maintaining the healthiest environment possible.
Make a gift today! Your dollar will be doubled as the Daniel Island Community Fund is matching each dollar up to $5,000.

The Wild Women Society is composed of passionate women who directly affect the lives of children by supporting the work of the Dee Norton Child Advocacy Center. Membership in the Society offers an opportunity to change the face of child abuse through active volunteering and funding services for children.
The Above and Beyond Capital Campaign is Dee Norton’s plan to address current and increasing future demand in the services we offer, and target critically under served areas of our region. With a gift to the Above and Beyond campaign, we can help break the cycle of abuse and take care of all children in the Lowcountry.

Each day our staff and partners leave their families to respond to another’s family crisis. During this pandemic, or any other crisis, that will not change.
We continue to see high priority cases for forensic interviews and have not yet seen a reduction in the volume of those cases.
Our individual, evidence-based mental health services and our family advocacy services will be offered through Telehealth solutions.
