2019 Readers’ Choice Awards – BEST NONPROFIT Thank you to The Emporia Gazette for presenting us with the 2019 Best NonProfit Award! We are so honored and grateful to be a part of such a supportive community. Our success is a reflection of a caring community that continuously supports us. This community has supported our fundraising events, donated items for those in need, volunteered their time and listened to our speakers to better educate themselves. Most importantly, they help us to spread awareness through their conversations and engagements. We have a wonderful staff and leadership that provides the life-changing services daily. Thanks to our supporters, our organization has grown in both scope and capability. SOS has four main programs and serve clients in six counties. In 2018, our Crisis Services and Outreach programs provided 18,134 services; our Child Advocacy Center completed 1,285 services; our CASA program (Court Appointed Special Advocate) served 100 children; and our Child Visitation and Exchange Center provided 790 services. We will continue to educate, advocate, provide safety and give hope to all victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and neglect.
