One local organization is helping prevent child abuse.
As part of Pro Bono week, the Houston County Bar Association for Young Lawyers raised money for the Exchange Center for Child Abuse Prevention.
The group of lawyers raised $2,500 for the center.
"It is important to have in the Wiregrass because we have to make sure our children are growing up in safe homes free from abuse and part of the ways you do that is you intervene in the cycle of abuse without intervention in the cycle nothing will ever change, " said Pamela Miles, executive director of the Exchange Center.
This year the Exchange Center did not get a $2,300 grant, but Miles says this donation makes up for it.
