Canopy relies on donations to ensure the center is operating, accessible, and able to provide critical services to children in need.

Canopy's mission is to serve children and families affected by child abuse through a multi-disciplinary partnership focused on safety, healing, and well-being. We envision a community where children are safe, families are resilient, and those affected by child abuse are empowered to heal and thrive.


"Coming to the center made me feel safe and happy and loved again."

Jesse, Age 5

“ The Child Advocacy Center (CAC) is an invaluable resource for the Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Unit! Law enforcement no longer has to struggle to line up all parts of the child’s safety and our investigation. The CAC brings everyone together in one place ensuring there is open communication and that everyone is able to prioritize the safety and wellbeing of the child and their family. The agency and the staff are so caring, professional and understanding. We truly couldn’t provide this level of service without them!”
Sgt. Tom Forester, Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Unit, Cleveland Police

"Staff was really friendly and attentive to our meetings. Everyone showed up on time and made my children feel comfortable. I absolutely loved that it was colorful inside and didn't look like a drag office room. The colors helped my children be calm."
