Victim Advocacy

The child abuse investigation and related victim services are coordinated from the Children’s Advocacy Center. The Victim Advocates work with the family to set up appointments and referrals for necessary services, explain the judicial process and assist with forms and other needs. Your advocate is available to talk with you about any feelings, concerns, worries and reactions that you, your child, or your family may have.
