Family Advocacy

Trauma and child abuse affect the whole family. When children and families are coping with the emotional impact of the initial report and ensuing investigation, our dedicated family advocates are here to help. From the start of the investigation to prosecution and beyond, our advocates are there to provide support, information, and assistance to the children and families we serve. 

Each family who comes through our center receives advocacy services, including:

  • Crisis intervention and liaison between the family, law enforcement, Child Protective Services, the Juvenile Justice System, the District Attorney's Office and medical professionals 

  • Education on their rights and the legal process in relation to child abuse

  • Case management services and case updates

  • Available rainbow room services (clothing and toiletries) as needed

  • Connection to community resources for assistance

  • Referrals to Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) 

  • Assistance in applying for Crime Victim's Compensation (CVC)

  • Hospital accompaniment as needed

  • Court accompaniment as needed 

  • Coordination of on-site medical exams

  • Seasonal programs which include a Back-to-School Drive and Holiday of Hope
