4th Annual Seattle Conference

Every year, we address several aspects of the Bioeconomy, including biofuel, biotechnology, and green chemistry. The impact of biofuels on greenhouse gases is subject to debate.

What is the Traverse Bay Children's Advocacy Center?

The Traverse Bay Children's Advocacy Center is dedicated to the identification, treatment, awareness and prevention of the sexual and physical abuse of children. Our mission is to protect children by providing prevention and multi-disciplinary intervention in investigation, assessment and treatment of child sexual and physical abuse in an environment that is child-sensitive, supportive and safe.


Help Our Superheroes!

Join us for the TBCAC's largest fundraiser of the year! We are pleased to welcome national speaker - Kevin Mulcahy - a U.S. Prosecutor and Chief of the General Crimes Division in Detroit who will share his personal story of childhood abuse and how he has devoted his career to "earning his cape." The Hagerty Center, with its glorious view of Lake Michigan, will once again be the spectacular venue for this meaningful event. New this year is a paddle raise to pay off the mortgage of our new home on Chartwell Drive! Don't miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make a heroic difference in the lives of traumatized children.

Empower Children to Conquer Abuse

Superheroes give us hope for a better future, a happy ending, and the triumph of good over evil. Kids who visit the TBCAC are real life Superheroes. Yet, every Superhero needs a Sidekick - a loyal friend who offers encouragement, especially when times get tough. That's why our children need you. Adults have the power to keep children safe. We want to empower YOU with the knowledge and skills to make that happen through an evidence-based curriculum called Stewards of Children by Darkness to Light. You may register a group of 10 or more people to receive this curriculum FREE, thanks to generous grant support from the Grand Traverse Regional Community Foundation.
