Mission Statement

The Abused Child Research Associates (ACRA) mission is to identify and assist victims of abuse and create a safe environment for learning in our schools. Sharell and her associates are determined to make a difference in the lives of families in the town of Acra and all of Greene county.

Donating directly to charity to help victims of abuse

Like many small towns in New York, Acra has suffered economically due to the nation's financial troubles and cutbacks in social programs. Many local businesses have moved away or permanently shut their doors. The Acra Community Center, established in 1991 has been there to lend a helping hand to those in need. The services they offer include meal delivery, assistance for the elderly, youth services, and help for victims of abuse. A portion of each workshop payment goes to the ACRA Community Center to help pay for their valuable, humanitarian programs.
