The new leader of the LDS Church’s Young Women organization said Wednesday that when a Utah girl is sexually abused, she can find safety, help and healing at one of the state’s Children’s Justice Centers.

“These centers provide a location where victims can go that are safe and where they can receive healing,” said Sister Bonnie H. Cordon, Young Women general president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “Ecclesiastical leaders are a great resource, too.”

Sister Cordon presented a $50,000 donation from the church Wednesday to support Utah’s rural Children’s Justice Centers. She provided the gift after a tour of the Avenues Children’s Justice Center in Salt Lake City.
