Who We Are:
We are a child-focused center that was established to provide support and services to children who have been sexually abused, physically abused or exposed to violence or neglect.
We hope to eliminate child abuse through prevention and awareness and provide them a place of healing.
We want to provide a safe place for child abuse victims and their families to receive comprehensive services from dedicated professional interviewers, nurses, counselors and advocates in a child-friendly atmosphere through a coordinated team approach as well as provide education to the community.
What We Do:
- We provide professionally conducted forensic interviews during which the child is respected and handled in a legally sound way.
- We provide access to medical exams when needed.
- We provide support and advocacy for children and non-offending family members following their initial interaction with our center. Our victim advocates are trained and knowledgeable of the court systems as well as the work of child protection, law enforcement, prosecution and the medical components of an investigation.
- We provide follow-up Trauma Focused counseling services for children. Early therapeutic intervention is crucial to the long term well-being of the child.
