Symphony of Trees
The Symphony of Trees is an annual fundraising event conducted in Napoleon, Ohio. It is a five-day, multiple-event that is held at the beautiful Armory Arts & Events Center. Over 300 community partners and volunteers come together every year to plan and implement the various events that are geared for audiences of all ages throughout the event week. Proceeds generated through the Symphony events benefit childrens’ treatment and programs at the Henry County Hospital, the Center for Child and Family Advocacy, and the Northwest Ohio Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program.
The Center for Child and Family Advocacy
The Center for Child & Family Advocacy, CCFA, is a community-based mental health agency specializing in prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse and domestic violence. The Center serves the counties of Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Paulding, and Williams. Child sexual abuse treatment services include play therapy for very young victims, as well as group and individual therapy for both victims and perpetrators. Sexual abuse prevention programming is provided to several thousand school-age children each year. The House of Ruth is a domestic violence shelter operated by the Center in a confidential location providing women and children with housing, food, clothing, counseling, and advocacy at no cost. Many CCFA programs to victims are provided free-of-charge. The donations and proceeds raised through this annual event cover the existing funding gaps and support CCFA in the provision of services to many child victims in the community.
Northwest Ohio CASA
Northwest Ohio Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) provides trained volunteers who are committed to standing up for abused children involved in the family court system. A CASA volunteer works to discover the best possible outcome for a child to make sure they are raised in a safe, permanent and nurturing home. Each child can then thrive and look forward to a positive future.
