Survivors can visit to communicate their preferences regarding notification of reopened investigations and prosecutions.

Who We Help

Since opening its doors in 2008, the Lily Pad has helped over 3,500 primary and secondary victims, offering a safe haven for abused children and adult victims, providing long-term advocacy for victims and their families, and assisting in the investigation of abuse cases.  

Since 2006, the Lily Pad:

  • Provided over 2,000 referrals for additional services
  • Provided forensic interviews for over 2,300 sexually and physically abused children
  • Provided over 1,800 SANE exams

How We Are Funded

There is no charge to victims that receive direct services from the Lily Pad. 

The Lily Pad is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. Approximately 70% of the agency budget comes from state and federal grant sources, and in 2009, state funding for sexual assault centers decreased by 47%.                                

Since 2008, Lily Pad has touched the lives of thousands of children and adults, who are victims of sexual assault or child abuse, and their families.


As the number of people living with the aftermath of sexual assault and child abuse grows, the demand for our services has dramatically increased. To meet the continuing challenge – and reach more families in Southwest Georgia than ever before – we need YOUR support.


Please help us reach our goal and help more victims find help and hope.
