We are very happy to announce that the Sandestin Foundation for Kids has donated $15,000 to the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center (ECCAC).
“We are so appreciative of this donation,” commented ECCAC’s CEO, Julie Hurst. “These funds will directly benefit our new Pierce Family Walton County Children’s Advocacy Center currently under construction, and we will have one of our play therapy rooms named in their honor.”
ECCAC’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect, protect children in Okaloosa and Walton Counties, and restore the lives and futures of these impacted children. The Center’s child-friendly facility in Niceville houses a multidisciplinary team of child protection personnel, prosecutors, law enforcement, DCF, therapists, and ECCAC staff and volunteers. A second Center is currently under construction in DeFuniak Springs to accommodate Walton County children. Services are provided at no cost by ECCAC, a 501-C-3 non-profit organization.
