Please join the Gulf Coast Kid’s House Board of Directors for Chocolate Fest 2014.  We will present our 11th annual chocolate lover’s extravaganza on Saturday, April 26 at Cordova Mall.

This chocolate is for a cause.  By participating in the 11th Annual Chocolate Fest, you are helping to raise funds that ensure child victims of abuse and neglect receive timely, effective and streamlined treatment.  At Gulf Coast Kid’s House, we facilitate a collaborative response to the abuse cases; ensuring that medical exams, recorded interviews, prosecution, and mental health counseling occur in one child-friendly facility.  This “one-stop” concept greatly reduces the trauma children experience and leads to better case outcomes.  In 2012, GCKH provided services to approximately 2000 child victims of abuse and neglect.  Please consider joining us for Chocolate Fest 2014.  This annual event brings much needed awareness and support to GCKH and child abuse issues.

GCKH serves a critical role in our community, giving abused children a safe, child-centered place to report the abuse they have suffered and providing timely, effective assistance designed to address the specific trauma each child has experienced. Through this coordinated effort, children and families experience reduced trauma and better case coordination, leading to better case outcomes.

Trace Leaves Rehab For A Guitar

Posted on: January 27th, 2014 by Chris

The most powerful songs are the ones that come from life and maybe that’s what Trace Adkins is up to as he left alcohol rehab to buy a new guitar over the weekend.

He visited Chafin Musicenter in Lake Worth, FL, as evidence of this picture posted on their Facebook page Saturday. TMZ reports he was escorted to the store by employees of the rehabcenter.

Two weeks ago Trace was involved in an altercation with an impersonator on a cruise ship. He admitted to falling off the wagon after more than 10 years sober, which prompted him to exit the cruise in Jamaica and get help.
