No child should suffer from abuse and neglect. We understand how frustrating it can be to want your generosity to make an impact in the world but not know whether your gift is truly changing things for the better. We’ve helped over 22,000 children begin healing from the trauma of abuse, and we invite you to join us in making a measurable and meaningful impact.

“To protect means to keep safe from harm or injury; Kimberly’s Center does more than that. Kimberly’s provides a secure setting that is the pathway to not only physical but also emotional protection during a young person’s most difficult times. The Ocala Police Department has experienced a smooth and professional relationship with Kimberly’s for many years and we will continue to trust the amazing work that is being done there.” -Chief Greg Graham
“"Kimberly's Center exists to provide pathways for healing and restoring children’s innocence after experiencing unspeakable trauma. As Board Chair, I am privileged to be part of an organization that provides these restorative services to some of the most vulnerable members of our society. The talented team at Kimberly's Center is dedicated to breaking the cycle of abuse while restoring childhood innocence." - Melissa Bianculli
“As a community, we talk a lot about first responders; and deservedly so. But what is relatively unknown is those who are tasked as first responders to child abuse and neglect: Kimberly's Center for Child Protection. Our community and the vulnerable children within it experience real protection and restoration as a result of their behind the scenes work. It's an honor and a privilege to support their efforts.” - Ken Ausley
