Who We Help
Since opening its doors in 2006, the Lily Pad has helped over 2,100 primary and secondary victims, offering a safe haven for abused children and adult victims, providing long-term psychological treatment for victims and their families, and assisting in the investigation of abuse cases. All services are offered at no cost to the individuals who were abused. Since 2006, the Lily Pad:
How We Are Funded
The Lily Pad is a 501 © 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%.
For the past six years, Lily Pad has touched the lives of hundreds of children and adults and their families who are victims of sexual assault or child abuse.
But 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 2013 – 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.
