How can we help you?

Children's Advocacy Center

Our Children's Advocacy Center offers:

  • A child-appropriate/child-friendly facility that is both physically and emotionally safe.

    • Law enforcement
    • Child protective services
    • Prosecution professionals
    • Mental health professionals
    • Medical providers
    • Victim advocacy professionals
    • Children’s advocacy center professionals
  • Medical evaluation through coordination and referral with other providers who are specifically trained in pediatric child abuse issues.
  • Victim support/advocacy to coordinate with other providers throughout the investigation and court process.
  • A family advocate program.
  • Case review to provide team discussion and information sharing throughout the case progression.
