A Children’s Advocacy Center typically has a multi-disciplinary team of medical and mental health personnel, child protective services, prosecutors, and law enforcement officers who work together to bring the investigation to a successful conclusion. The Center is a child-friendly place where child victims and families can receive needed services such as parent support groups, counseling, and crisis intervention. Trained personnel are available to work with families traumatized by child abuse and can also help bridge the gap between social services and the Criminal Justice System. Children’s Advocacy Centers have proven to be effective and successful in meeting needs of children and families who have experienced sexual abuse. Hope’s Place is a Children’s Advocacy Center.
