SIDEBAR FEATURE

MCAP UPDATE
By Mary C. Pugh, Esq., Executive Director

I

hope that you all enjoyed a restful and memorable summer.
The summer for MCAP certainly has been exciting and
memorable. MCAP continues to serve abused and neglected
children and to date, has helped more than 5,680 children in over
4,115 cases. One wonders where these
helpless children would be without the
independent neutral advocates representing
their unique perspectives.
Since 2015, MCAP has experienced a
72% increase in the number of children
we serve per year due to the complexities
of the opioid crisis, insufficient mental
health supports, and the explosion of child
sex trafficking in our area. We appreciate
our 125+ volunteer attorneys who dedicate
their time and talents to helping children
heal and overcome abuse.
Thank you for helping to make
the 30th Annual Run for the Hill of
It a tremendous success. On Saturday,
July 28th, more than 200 participants
ran or walked along the beautiful path
in Fairmount Park. Eager volunteers
registered the participants, manned water
stations, distributed food, and cheered the
successful runners and walkers. Dressed as
Superheroes, about 30 kids ran the mile
in record time while the Phillie Phanatic
excited everyone with his usual silly
antics. The combination of the contagious
enthusiasm and the wonderful sponsors
created a successful and memorable day.

Mark your calendar for the
upcoming CLE, entitled The Art
of Representing Children in the Legal Arena on
Friday, October 19, 2018. Also, you will not want to miss this
year's Salute to Heroes Dinner Dance and
Auction at the Sheraton Valley Forge on
Saturday, November 17, 2018. This year,
we are thrilled to honor Sarah Klein - a
SUPERHERO and an amazing person.
The first known gymnast assaulted by Dr.
Larry Nassar, former Michigan State and
USA Gymnastics (USAG) doctor, Sarah
is a brave and courageous leader who
advocates for abused children. As a hero
to at-risk kids, she shares her story as living
proof that victims of abuse can overcome
the horrors of abuse and live happy,
healthy, productive lives. Every day, she
makes a difference in the lives of others.
Details for all upcoming events are
found on our website at www.mcapkids.
org or feel free to call MCAP at 610279-1219. Thank you all for supporting
MCAP and allowing us to give children
chances to live in safe and healthy
environments. If you are not an MCAP
advocate, please contact our offices and
find out how to get involved. Your
services will make a difference in a child's
life and help unlock the Superhero inside
every child.
