Our The children who visit the Child Advocacy Center have endured a lot in their young lives - physical and sexual abuse; exploitation through the Internet; child pornography; the horror of witnessing a crime; and more. These are the allegations that bring children to our house.Vision is to end the abuse suffered by every child victim who walk through our doors.
Inside our door, children are greeted by delightful murals, a toy-filled reception area and professionals trained to address the unique needs of children who have been hurt. Working with a team of investigators, we provide two critical services - Forensic Interviews and Sexual Assault Forensic Exams. Behind the scenes in our house, a team of investigators (which includes law enforcement officials, Children's Division investigators, juvenile officers and others), observes the interview, shares information, discusses outcomes and determines a safety plan that will be in the best interest of each child.
