Our Services What we can do

Working Together to Make a Difference

Our Children’s Advocacy Center works in partnership with all the necessary agencies and specialists to coordinate a plan of action.

Together, we work with police, prosecutors, social workers, advocates, medical and mental health professionals and others to provide high-quality, specialized services for abused children and their families. What’s more, we provide many of our services in the comfort and convenience of our child- friendly location.

Helping abused children and their families requires an approach that addresses the physical, emotional and legal dimensions of abuse. And it requires a coordinated response from expert professionals to reduce stress throughout the investigation and intervention process.
