In 1989, a Children's Court Advisory Board was created to bring together professionals from diverse disciplines, along with caring citizens, to open up communication and provide education and awareness for the public to address the growing concern of child maltreatment. The group met monthly for 20 years, changing laws that affected children who had been abused, and developing and strengthening policies and protocols to better serve the needs of the community.
As time went on, the group continued to expand, there was more community involvement, and in 2009 the Walworth County Alliance for Children (WCAC) was formally established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
At the Tree House, we believe in prevention, education, and awareness to ensure that children live in safe, stable, and nurturing environments. We believe healthy childhood development is the foundation for community and economic advancement, the building blocks of a flourishing society and stable nation.
