Douglas County Child Advocacy Center

Douglas County Child Advocacy Center

Our Goal:

The goal of the Douglas County Child Advocacy Center is to reduce the trauma experienced by child victims of abuse and their non-offending family members by providing a central, child friendly environment in which they can receive all needed services and by facilitating a comprehensive multidisciplinary team approach to the investigation and prosecution of child abuse.

Purpose of a Child Advocacy Center:

Child Advocacy Centers offer a neutral child friendly space for forensic interviews to be conducted by interviewers who are trained in a protocol that puts the needs, safety and mental health of a child first. The Child Advocacy Center provides a way for individual agencies to work together in a multidisciplinary team that centers the needs of child victims of abuse.

In an effort to address every aspect of a child’s life the Child Advocacy Center provides wrap-around services for children and their families. Trauma specific counseling services are provided free of charge to the child and family, fostering healing and recovery.

Future incidents of child abuse can be decreased through the education of parents, the community, organizations and professionals about the signs, protective factors and unique developmental needs of children. The Child Advocacy Center and its partner agencies provide educational programming to increase knowledge and awareness throughout our community.
