The Lake of the Woods Childhelp Auxiliary was founded in 1997 to support the Alice C. Tyler Village of Childhelp
The Village houses up to 60 children who have been abused and are in need of a home.
The Auxiliary hosts parties, provides duffel bags and birthday presents, takes the children on outings, and raises money to pay for items that the Village needs. Many of our members also serve as Reading Buddies for children who need extra help.

The Auxiliary is part of the National Childhelp Organization (www.childhelp.org), which provides help for abused children throughout the United States. One of its most important programs is a hotline (1-800-4-A-Child), established in 1982. It operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and offers a wide variety of support services from professional crisis counselors.
