LAWRENCEVILLE, GA - The Gwinnett Braves have announced the recipient of their $1,000 grant for the month of September. A Child's Voice Child Advocacy Center, Inc. has been awarded September's "All About Kids" themed grant, aimed at funding an organization that benefits children.

A Child's Voice CAC, Inc. provides a comprehensive, coordinated response for child victims of sexual abuse or physical abuse and for witnesses to violence, abuse or homicide. The Center partners with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta to facilitate forensic interviews and medical examinations in a safe, child-friendly environment. Interviews are video-recorded so that children are spared the need to relive traumatic events while valuable, accurate information can be gathered as evidence.

"A Child's Voice Child Advocacy Center would like to thank the Gwinnett Braves for their generous support of our organization," said Administrative Assistant Katie Bruner. "With this grant, we will continue our work with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta to provide forensic medical examinations utilizing tele-health in our efforts to deliver the best medical care possible for the children who visit our center. We look forward to partnering with the Gwinnett Braves to serve children and their families now and in the future."
