Childhelp Advocacy Centers

The two children’s advocacy centers under the Childhelp umbrella support a highly effective, nationally recognized one-stop approach to child abuse response. As models of community collaboration, the Centers provide a child-friendly facility where members of the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) interview victims, conduct medical exams, provide specialized mental health treatment, and provide family members with referrals to other community resources while law enforcement agencies and county attorneys pursue the prosecution of offenders. The MDT includes law enforcement, child protective services, and medical, mental health, and legal professionals. The multi-disciplinary team exemplifies community cooperation to improve outcomes for victims and their communities.
