23rd Annual LifeHouse Golf Tournament

The 23rd Annual LifeHouse Golf Tournament
Friday, May 26, 2017
Lake Shawnee Golf Course

Our annual Golf Tournament serves as a major fundraiser for LifeHouse. LifeHouse helps child victims of sexual abuse, extreme physical abuse and child witnesses to violent crimes in Shawnee and surrounding counties. Law enforcement detectives and child protective services investigators meet together at LifeHouse where the child has their forensic interview and the family receives support and advocacy services. Our services are all provided free of charge, always with the child’s best interest in mind. Not only do our programs protect victimized children from further harm, they are instrumental in the removal of sexual predators from our streets.

We are now taking registrations for Golf Teams. Registration cost is $340 per team and includes carts, green fees, prizes, player gifts, lunch and refreshments.
See the Golfer Registration Form below to register your team.
This tournament will fill up quickly, so get your team in fast!

The success of our tournament relies on our Hole Sponsors as well!
See the Sponsor Registration Form below for the different levels of sponsorship. All proceeds from the golf tournament benefit child victims right here in this community.
All sponsors and donors are greatly appreciated.  A tremendous thank you to Carlos O' Kelly's and Greg's Blowin' Smoke BBQ for feeding our golfers this year.

Please feel free to contact LifeHouse at 785-232-5433 or cac@lifehousecac.com with any questions! Thank you for your support!

Protecting Your Children: Advice From Child Molesters

posted Jul 1, 2016, 9:39 AM by Jill Shehi Chapman   [ updated Jan 25, 2017, 6:29 AM ]

Please come out to LifeHouse's presentation of "Protecting Your Children: Advice From Child Molesters."  Admission is free!

Dates:
Tuesday, February 21, 2017 - Wanamaker Elementary 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Tuesday, March 7, 2017 - Topeka Public Library 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Nationally 300,000 cases of child sexual abuse are reported every year, with fewer than 5% of child victims ever telling anyone. Few offenders are ever caught because they work extremely hard to rehearse their defense as well as silence and seduce their victims.

This presentation is open to public and we encourage you all to attend. Come and learn new ways of identifying and preventing child sexual abuse. Child sexual abuse is a big problem in our community and it is up to each of us to make sure our kids are safe.

Let the experts show you the best ways of keeping your children and the children you care about safe.

This workshop incorporates video taped interviews with convicted sex offenders and graphic discussion about sexual crimes and child abuse. At no time will sex offenders be present.

Participants with a personal history of abuse are encouraged to have support people available following the presentation. Children and teens should not attend the presentation.

Let us know if you have any questions!

3rd Annual Kansas Law Enforcement
Run to Remember

5K, 10K, 1 Mile Fun Run
Saturday, May 2nd 2015 8:30am



The 3rd Annual Kansas Law Enforcement Run to Remember will honor those law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice and have given their lives protecting and serving their communities and to support the families they have left behind.

The Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary is an organization of family members of the Fraternal Order of Police Topeka Lodge #3, which is comprised of the Topeka Police Department and the Shawnee County Sheriff's Office.  Their goal is to establish a network of support and camaraderie among law enforcement families and to enrich the bond that is shared between members.

Each year the FOPA names an organization to share the proceeds of the run.  This year the FOPA has chosen LifeHouse Child Advocacy Center as their recipient organization!  Proceeds of the event will benefit both the Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary, Topeka #3 and LifeHouse.  LifeHouse is very proud of our relationship with our local law enforcement agencies and are thankful for the opportunity to be involved in this event!

A 5K, 10K, and 1 mile fun run will take place at Lake Shawnee Shelter House 1.  Participants receive a wick away shirt + medals are awarded to the top three finishers in various male and female age groups. 

REGISTER TODAY at https://runtoremember2015.eventbrite.com.  Early registration ends April 11th.  After April 11th, participants are no longer guaranteed a shirt.

Thank you for supporting your local law enforcement community and LifeHouse Child Advocacy Center!
