We know these unprecedented times are a struggle for many in our community. We are in this together and WILL get through this together!
We have created a community support hub of #SVTogether – a place where our families can come to help others or for those seeking assistance. We are collecting supplies, monetary donations and even offers of personal connection and transportation. If you would like to donate your time and/or resources, please click on and complete the “I Want to Help” survey below.

Butler Alliance for Children
The Butler Alliance for Children has begun a Play Safe * Stay Safe initiative and is searching for donors. They are collecting new, unopened board games, card games, outside games, etc. that will be donated to families throughout Butler County. The items will be delivered to the center or picked up by center staff at donor's homes. The plan is to provide activities to keep children occupied and families engaged with one another to minimize stress and the likelihood of abuse. To learn more or donate, visit https://www.butlercountycac.org/initiatives.
