Donate Tax refunds to help Children

You can aid in the battle to eliminate child abuse and neglect in Alabama. 
Use the tax return check off box to donate all, or a portion, of your income tax refund to the Alabama Children's Trust Fund, administered by the Alabama Department of Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention (ADCANP).

Children Trust Funds are returned to the community to combact child abuse and neglect on a local level.
Community Action Agency Northwest receives ADCANP funding for the Fatherhood and Mothers Parenting Programs.
In the last fiscal year the Northwest Alabama Responsible Parenting - served 163 Fatherhood participants and the Mothers Program served 213 Mothers.
