Over 350 new and old supporters of CAPS joined together to learn more about the organization’s mission and listen to film and TV producer David Goldblum talk about the importance of preventing child abuse on Friday, Feb. 16.  

Goldblum, who has worked on numerous films produced by stars like Meryl Streep and Rashida Jones, shared his personal story of growing up in an abusive home and how it informs his work today. Goldblum is currently working on a film adaptation of the best-selling memoir, “A Child Called It,” written by Dave Pelzer, which details the horrific abuse Pelzer experienced as a child.  

“We were so thrilled to have David Goldblum as our keynote speaker for our Pinwheel Breakfast,” said CAPS CEO Rebecca Shetler Fast. “We believe it’s our community’s responsibility to ensure that every child lives a life free from abuse and neglect, and David’s work aligns so closely with that belief.”  

The CAPS Pinwheel Breakfast was an opportunity for the organization to engage the broader community and share its mission of ensuring that every child lives a life free from abuse and neglect and that all families have the tools they need to raise happy and healthy families.
