My Story…

Meeting the needs of kids fleeing violence is important to me for two reasons. One reason is that I know abuse occurs in a cycle. So by making sure that kids and their moms are supported at Dixon, the cycle of abuse can end. Another reason (and more importantly to me), I believe that childhood is something sacred. Sure, they're our future, but I also know that every child who's come through Dixon's doors has been through a lot already in their young lives. I believe that childhood should be a time of wonder, play, and lots of laughter and love. I'm going the #DistanceForDixon because I know that the child support program allows kids impacted by violence to heal and have the chance to just be kids despite all they've experienced. I hope you will support me by donating!

Because of this, we offer a comprehensive child support program, with dedicated Child Support Workers, fun group activities and an exciting summer recreation program.
