SafeSpace Summer of Hope benefit a success


Non-profit continues to seek support for lifesaving work

HOOD RIVER – The Safe Space Child Advocacy Center held its annual benefit on July 23 at the Stave and Stone Winery in Hood River and raised more than $40,000.

The funds will benefit programming that offers lifesaving support for youth in Gilliam, Wheeler, Klickitat, Wasco and Hood River counties.

Gilliam County Sheriff Gary Bettencourt served as auctioneer for the event and musical entertainment was provided by Moe Dixon. The event was a celebration of the nonprofit’s work and of their dedicated staff.

Safe Space CAC is a nonprofit organization that responds to incidents of child sexual and physical abuse in the Columbia River Gorge. It also serves children that witness violence and other serious forms of mistreatment.

As the only nonprofit organization that coordinates efforts of child protection staff, law enforcement professionals, family advocates, medical experts and mental health clinicians in the Gorge; SafeSpace CAC is a beacon of hope for abused children.

While the Summer of Hope benefit will help SafeSpace continue in their mission, additional support is welcomed. Donations are tax-deductible and will make a difference in the lives of youth in the region. Click here to donate today.
