Bruno Yactayo, our Bilingual Family Advocate at the Suffolk County Child Advocacy Center (CAC), recently presented at the Comsewogue Community Connections Night to families of the hispanic community at Comsewogue High School.

The “Women of West Islip,” represented by Carmela R., ran a Share the Love stuffed animal drive and donated dozens of cute and fluffy animals to our Suffolk County Child Advocacy Center (CAC) to help provide comfort to child victims of abuse and neglect. Thank you, Women of West Islip!
Another Girl Scout Troop brought “sweet cases” to the CAC this week! Troop 2525 was represented by Troop Leader Angela who dropped off an additional donation of duffel bags filled with goodies to make our children feel a little better during their time of crisis. Thank you, Troop 2525!
