Child Abuse. Do Something.
Since 2004, Bivona Child Advocacy Center has helped more than 9,500 abused children in the Greater Rochester region. If you brought those children all together, they would fill 130 school buses.

I pledge to help stop child abuse by taking three simple actions:
- I promise to acknowledge that child sexual abuse is an important problem and to do my part to end the secrecy and shame associated with it.
- I promise to learn more about child abuse.
- I promise to help when I suspect that a child is being abused.

There are so many ways you could help, limited only by your imagination. We’ve got a few ideas for how you could spread the word about child abuse and the services at Bivona…and maybe raise a few bucks, too. But we’re looking for your ideas, too. Check it out.
We run on the strength of our volunteers. We have people who help out in the office, who sit on committees (like marketing and PR, development, finance), who help us run our fundraising events.
Whatever your skills, we welcome you. The children will benefit forever from your kindness. Read more about volunteering.
