The CMI Group Adopts Twelve Families for the Holidays
Carrollton, TX: During November 2017, the CMI Group (CMI) organized a company-wide event, partnering with the Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County (CACDC) to provide 12 families with a total of 33 children a magical Christmas this year. This project focused on fulfilling the holiday needs and wishes of children who have been victims of sexual or physical abuse. The CACDC is committed to a multidisciplinary response to child sexual abuse. Children who grow up in violent homes are six times more likely to commit suicide, 24 times more likely to commit sexual assault crimes, 74 times more likely to commit crimes against persons, and 50 times more likely to abuse drugs or alcohol. Established in 1997, the CACDC coordinates with law enforcement, child protective services, and medical and mental health professionals to help children and their non-offending family members seek justice and find healing.

“In 2016, CMI provided gifts for 10 CACDC families. In 2017, our goal was to beat last year’s donations and we did just that! CMI was able to fulfill more of CACDC’s total need and we are thrilled at the success of the project. Giving back to the community is important to us at CMI, and that is evident in the generosity our employees showed during this project,” said Chelsea Carter, call center coach and coordinator of the event.
