The Child Advocacy Center of Hillsborough County announced that former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown will deliver the keynote address at the charity's 7th annual fundraising gala, to be held May 4th at Nashua’s Crowne Plaza. Senator Brown, a survivor of childhood physical and sexual abuse, will speak in front of the sold out event at 9 p.m.
"We're honored to have such an inspirational figure speaking at this year's gala," said Dan Monfried, Board President of the Granite State Children's Alliance, parent of the Hillsborough charity. " Our mission is to put young victims of abuse on a path to healing, and Scott Brown is proof that with care and nurturing these children can go on to achieve great things."
Based on a nationally recognized model, child advocacy centers are community partnerships dedicated to pursuing the truth in child abuse cases and providing social services to child victims. By bringing together New Hampshire’s law enforcement, county attorneys, state protective services, victim advocates and health professionals, child advocacy centers provide safe, child friendly locations for interviewing child victims, coordinating the investigative team and providing ongoing help for the victim’s recovery. The Granite State Children’s Alliance operates child advocacy centers in Belknap, Cheshire and Hillsborough Counties and is the State Chapter of National Children’s Alliance, providing technical assistance, training, and organizational resources to child advocacy centers throughout New Hampshire.
