About Us

Our History

CEI Logo transparent 300

Child Enrichment Inc., was established in 1977 by a group of physicians, nurses and social workers to help abused children overcome their experience and rebuild their lives. In 1978, an emergency shelter was the first of many services to be developed for abused children. Later in 1995, the organization merged with The Augusta Child Advocacy Center, adding comprehensive child advocacy services.

Child Enrichment has helped over 19,000 local, abused, abandoned and neglected children since opening its doors to our community’s children. The children we serve have different backgrounds, races, religious beliefs and experiences. We have two distinct service programs within our organization, which are designed to meet the varied needs of abused children. These programs are: The Child Advocacy Center and the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program. In addition, Child Enrichment has a volunteer program designed to support the service programs, administration, and to assist during the annual special events: Art of Chocolate and Cookin’ for Kids.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the programs and services we provide depend heavily on the support of those who believe in our mission and care about the plight of abused children. Since our services are free of charge, we rely on the support of donors like you, and the community to make sure that no child goes without help. Donations are tax deductible, as are portions of ticket prices for special events.

The Child Advocacy Center is accredited by the National Children's Alliance, and provides Forensic Interviewing of children suspected of having been sexually abused. Expert court testimony and court advocacy for the victim are provided when alleged perpetrators are charged with sex crimes against children. Counseling for the victims, their siblings and non-offending caregivers is provided free of charge. Last year, 334 children received these services, along with 385 of their family members.
