Grandma's House CAC is a safe place
for child abuse victims & their families that serves seven counties in Arkansas:
Baxter, Boone, Carroll, Madison, Marion, Newton & Searcy.
Founded in 2010, we offer FREE forensic interviews, medical exams, therapy and step by step guidance through the healing process. We are proud to say we now have three locations, a full staff and, as always, a community that supports us day in and day out.
Grandma's House has lost one of our own precious friends this week, Tom Backwell served Grandma's House for a decade as our in-house architect, handyman and resident 'talker' and dear friend. Tom had been affectionately named "The grandpa of Grandma's House" and called Grandpa Tom by our team. He created some of the most beautiful and child-friendly parts of Grandma's House as seen in these photos. A custom playhouse with a matching fireplace, a one of a kind medical table disguised as a pirate ship, and the bridge leading to our therapy area. He helped to make Grandma's House special for the children who walked through our doors helping them to feel safe and welcomed. Almost as important, he greeted our staff with a friendly smile and big hugs. Sometimes when they needed it the most. Tom left his mark on almost every surface, nook and cranny and we will miss him dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are with his sweet family. Below is the link to his obituary. Please remember his family at this time. Click here for service details and obituary. We will miss you Grandpa Tom. You were well loved.
