Prior to the advent of children's advocacy centers, abused children faced a maze of entities in reporting the abuse and getting appropriate therapeutic care. Families often faced frustration with the system and withdrew from the process, resulting in no conviction for the perpetrator and no healing for the child.
At our local Child Advocacy Centers, a child can relate his or her experience one time, in one place, rather than being shuttled between doctors, police, counselors, and child advocates. We strive to provide a comfortable, child-friendly setting in which a child can feel safe telling what has happened to them. Our multidisciplinary teams are made up of trained professionals whose primary goal is to reduce the burden of the children and help facilitate their recovery.
With your help, we can be One Loud Voice for Mississippi's children.
