The Lisa Project is a unique multi-sensory exhibit experience allowing the visitor to hear, see, and experience the reality of the world of child abuse. Through audio narration from a child’s perspective, visitors are guided room by room through scenarios depicting abuse. This experience is fully immersing each guest into the world that these children face on a daily basis.
Learn how individuals, agencies, and our community can “BE THE ONE” to help advocate, educate, and be a connection for those in need.
