Each week we host 3 support groups for our child victims. The groups are designed to teach skills like safety, coping, prosocial interaction, anger management, etc, but do so while the kids are playing games, making crafts, and having a great time!
We also have a monthly parent/caregiver group that meets on the last Thursday of each month. If you are interested in attending the parent/caregiver group please call Macee at 229-435-0074.
Who We Are
Lily Pad is regionally recognized for its exceptional delivery of comprehensive services to victims and families impacted by crimes of sexual assault and child sexual/physical abuse. Services provided are developmentally appropriate and specialized to meet the distinctive needs of each individual. Programs and services provided include:
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:
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 challenge in 2014 – 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.
