Virtual Movie with CALICO: Broken Trust

Join us for a FREE Virtual Movie and Q&A for Child Abuse Prevention Month.

We are showing “Broken Trust- Athlete Abuse Exposed,” followed by a live Zoom panel. One of the best ways for adults to protect children from sexual abuse is to learn about the dynamics involved in this type of abuse, including in the sports world. If you have children in your life that participate in sports or other youth-serving organizations, this event is a can’t miss opportunity to learn ways to make our communities safer for all children. We invite you to view the film at your leisure in the week prior to our live Zoom event.

There is no cost to attend! RSVP to receive the links.

For the past few years, we have held a Holiday Gift Shop at CALICO. Where we invite families-in-need to come and "shop" for holiday gifts for their children. Because of COVID-19, we can't have families come "shop" but that won't stop us from getting kids gifts! This is only possible with the generous support of our partners. Check out this INCREDIBLY generous donation from the Newark Police Department!

This #GivingTuesday we hope you will donate to CALICO and help abused children and their families.

Although we have worked tirelessly to maintain daily operations and continue to provide vital in-person services to abused children and their families, it has been a challenge. While the demand for services is increased, CALICO has been forced to do more with fewer resources. Please make a donation to our #OpenForKids2020 campaign and keep CALICO's services available!

Even during this pandemic, CALICO's doors are open to bring justice and healing to our children. COVID-19 has forced us to cancel our largest fundraising events of the year costing CALICO over $100,000 in crucial funding for abused children and families. Unfortunately, child abuse is on the rise, and while the demand for service is increasing, CALICO is working with fewer resources.
Our community needs CALICO now, more than ever. And CALICO needs YOU. 💗
We want to keep CALICO Open for Kids. Can we count on you for help? 🙏
Please make a donation to our OpenForKids2020 campaign!

Talking to kids about Covid-19 and how they can avoid/prevent getting and spreading it is incredibly important. The CDC says that “Parents, family members, school staff, and other trusted adults can play an important role in helping children make sense of what they hear in a way that is honest, accurate, and minimizes anxiety or fear.” Here are some guidelines on having a productive conversation on it:

General information

CALICO is the only multi-disciplinary interviewing center serving Alameda County. As part of a national movement of child advocacy centers, we ensure that children are not re-victimized by the very systems designed to protect them. We're an accredited member of the National Children's Alliance, an honor that demonstrates our high standards and proven record of effective investigation and response to suspected cases of child abuse. CALICO serves children 2-17 years of age as well as a small number of developmentally delayed adults who were abused in Alameda County and provides family support services to their caregivers. In 2009, our clients were two-third girls and one-third boys. Approximately 74% disclosed sexual abuse and many were physically hurt, neglected, exploited as prostitutes, and/or exposed to violence in their homes and communities. The children we see are quite young: 40% were 2-6 years of age and another 40% were 7-12.

Family picnics are a great way to get outside while still staying safe (make sure to wear masks when not eating!). Choose an area that isn’t crowded. Bonus points if you teach your child some basic cooking skills while preparing the picnic food!
This is a great organization..Please support if you can
You are doing great work in California!
