Help for the family.
During the child's interview, a Child Advocate meets with the child's family to listen to them, offer support and understanding, provide crisis intervention, referrals for specialized medical and mental health services, and information about the investigation and legal process. Our Child Advocate provide the family with a voice and direction during some of the worst circumstances imaginable. Advocacy services are provided to every child and their non-offending caregiver seen at Child Safe. Ultimately, we want children and families impacted by child abuse to heal. We want them to recover and move forward on a positive path.
We know that advocacy is important, but what do we do after that?
