Paul Vizard, 30ATV founder said, “I am delighted to help with the telethon. To see the Pierce Family Center in Walton County come to life this year has been an amazing journey. The importance now is to ensure operation costs are met.”
ECCAC’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect, protect children in Okaloosa and Walton Counties, and restore the lives and futures of these impacted children. The Center’s child-friendly facilities house a multidisciplinary team of child protection personnel, prosecutors, law enforcement, DCF, therapists, and ECCAC staff and volunteers. In the past 15 years, over 10,000 children have received more than 40,000 services to include mental health therapy, crisis intervention, referrals to other community providers, interviews and medicals. Services are provided at no cost by ECCAC, a 501-C-3 non-profit organization.
