CHILD ADVOCACY

CENTER

This program utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to child abuse investigations, working with children ages 3-17 who have been the victims of physical and/or sexual abuse, neglect, or are witnesses to violence.

CHILD EXCHANGE & VISIT CENTER

This program is a court ordered service which ensures the safety of children while visiting with their non-residential parents. 

COURT APPOINTED SPECIAL ADVOCATES

This program is based on the idea that average citizens can become professionally trained volunteers who serve as the eyes and ears of the court. Even more importantly, these volunteers are a voice for the child.
