Tuscaloosa Child Abuse Prevention Services raising money to fund programs

CAPS Tuscaloosa event

TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - One group in Tuscaloosa is working to prevent child abuse, and they need your help to keep their efforts going.

Child Abuse Prevention Services (CAPS) in Tuscaloosa is partly funded by United Way, but also with the generous help of the community.

It's that time of year again where they need folks to come out and support them so they can support our kids.

CAPS' Night Light Golf Tournament is happening this Friday at Tall Pines Golf Course.

The money raised at the tournament and silent auction helps pay for their many programs.

One of their programs teaches students how to recognize, refuse and report inappropriate touches and situations.

"It's necessary to have CAPS because of everything that happens - everything that's going on now in the world with all the abuse. The way it's taught, it gives them the courage to speak up and speak out," said Daisy Hicks with CAPS.
