Child abuse does not have to define who a child will become. At the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center (NKYCAC) children and families have a safe, child-friendly place they can come when there are concerns about abuse. NKYCAC provides a non-threatening, relaxed atmosphere that helps ease the anxieties and fears of child victims and their families. 

The NKYCAC, located in Florence, Kentucky serves Northern Kentucky children under the age of 18 who are alleged victims or at risk of child sexual abuse, severe physical abuse, human trafficking, or children who have witnessed violent crimes. The NKYCAC works with law enforcement, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, and prosecutors’ offices to facilitate a comprehensive approach to child abuse cases. NKYCAC provides critical services including forensic interviews, mental health treatment, medical evaluation, family advocacy, and coordination of investigations by the Multidisciplinary Team.

By supporting the NKYCAC you are helping children heal from the devastating effects of child abuse by ensuring they receive treatment, intervention, and an opportunity to achieve a successful, healthy life.

Local pediatrician runs 100 miles to raise money for abused children

00000000

FLORENCE, Ky. – Dr. Robert Tagher of Pediatrics of Florence in Florence, KY will run 100 miles through the Florida Keys to benefit Northern Kentucky children who have been abused and neglected. Dr. Tagher is competing in Keys 100 ultramarathon, a 100 mile long race from Key Largo to Key West, on May 21 and 22. He’s collecting sponsorships to benefit the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center (NKYCAC). NKYCAC provides a coordinated response to child abuse in a child-focused environment, offering prevention, evaluation and treatment to children and families. Last year, NKYCAC served more than 800 children in Northern Kentucky who were physically, sexually and emotionally abused. Dr. Tagher serves on the Board of Directors at NKYCAC. He successfully completed the 100-mile run in 2017 and raised over $20,000 for the Center. His goal is to raise more money this time. "I absolutely love to run, so being able to do it with others and for others means a lot to me,” said Dr. Tagher. “I think this adventure at the Keys 100 will mean even more if the money we raise can be used to better serve the children who need the Advocacy Center. I hope people can sponsor me because when the going gets tough on race day - and it will - knowing that people made sacrifices is what keeps me going.” You can support his efforts by donating today, text Rob100 to 53555 or click this link https://givebutter.com/67bSIK. “We are extremely inspired and looking forward to following Dr. Tagher as he runs in the Ultramarathon,” said Executive Director of NKYCAC, Vickie Henderson. “This year as Dr. Tagher is running we want him to know and remember that there is a whole team of supporters back in his community cheering him on and supporting the children that Dr. Tagher has committed his life to protecting and keeping healthy.” You can also follow NKYCAC on Facebook at www.facebook.com/nkycac to watch and encourage of Dr. Tagher as he runs ultramarathon.
