VOICES FOR CHILDREN – END OF YEAR 2020

It’s the end of the year 2020 and the Children’s Advocacy Center is grateful for all of the support we’ve been shown this year! 

Please take a moment to watch this video and learn what the Children’s Advocacy Center has done this year to help serve the children and families impacted by physical and sexual abuse and Covid-19.  



Please take a moment to listen.


Help us continue critical services during COVID-19

Each day our staff and partners leave their families to respond to another’s family crisis. During this pandemic, or any other crisis, that will not change.

We continue to see all cases for forensic interviews and have not yet seen a reduction in the volume of those cases.

Our individual, evidence-based mental health services and family advocacy services are being offered through Telehealth solutions as well as in person.
