Partnerships & Community Support
We deeply appreciate the hundreds of letters and years of support from our foster parents, parents, board members, volunteers, donors and community partners...
"I have come to recognize and appreciate those individuals and organizations that demonstrate a genuine concern for the welfare and best interests of children. No one else does a much nor does it better than Child Watch."
- Justice J.W. Bill Graves
"No organization provides more or better services to the neglected and abused children of the Purchase Area that Child Watch. Our whole region owes Child Watch more than can ever be repaid for its protection, advocacy, counseling, education and hope for those who most in need; those who have suffered the unspeakable. Child Watch has given voice to the voiceless."
- Judge Donna Dixon, Kentucky Court of Appeals
"As a McCracken County Judge for 14 years, I have had close contact with Child Watch and am well aware of the high level of expertise and care that it provides the community."
- Hon. Craig Z. Clymer, McCracken County Circuit Court
"Child Watch and CASA volunteers have proven to be invaluable assets in fighting the evil of child abuse."
- Hon. R. Jeffrey Hines, McCracken County Circuit Court
"I have personally been aware of Child Watch's benefits to the Purchase Area communities for many years. However, it was only after I took the bench as Family Court Judge in 1999 that I understood the impact Child Watch had on many families and children in these communities." - Hon. Cynthia Sanderson, McCracken County Family Court
"Child Watch has done everything that I have asked and more." - Michael Stacy, Ballard/Carlisle/Fulton/Hickman County Commonwealth Attorney
"For the past twenty years, Child Watch has acted on behalf of the children of this community in a diligent and professional way as child advocates." - Timothy J. Kaltenbach, McCracken County Commonwealth Attorney
"The Child Watch Center in Paducah has provided excellent services and care, such as counseling and court advocacy, to the children that are victims of sexual and physical abuse..." - Michael D. Ward, Marshall/Calloway County Commonwealth Attorney
"I strongly believe that this facility is an integral part of our fight against abused and exploited children." - Daniel Y. Boaz, McCracken County Attorney
"I am always amazed at the number of students who open up to you about their personal situations and take that first step towards stopping the cycle of abuse. You give them the knowledge, courage and support to take a step that will positively affect them for the rest of their lives." - Principal Rita Henson, Cooper-Whiteside Elementary School
"I have a great respect for and a great deal of gratitude for what Child Watch has done for my family. I have already seen what I expect will be the end to a cycle of poverty and abuse and neglect that have gone on for generations with my children's biological families." - Willa Sluggs, Foster Parent, Crittenden County
And we have received hundreds more that we are very appreciative of...
"A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of clothes you wore, what kind of car you drove, or what kind of house you lived in, what will matter is that you made a difference... in the life of a child."
"We build our homes as a haven from the cold and rain. Let us also build them as a haven from child abuse."
