Children's Advocacy Center
Children’s Advocacy Center is a child-focused, facilities-based program with representatives from many disciplines who work together to investigate, prosecute, and treat child abuse. Research shows that our one-time interview with a specially-trained forensic interviewer does away with the trauma a child would experience in separate interviews with police, DCFS, prosecutors, and doctors.
The Children’s Advocacy Center acts as a neutral third party, coordinating services to the child and non-offending family members in the investigation process.
Youth Mentoring contributes to strengthening kids, families, and the community as a whole by providing successful mentoring programs for all children who need and want them.
Kids matched with a mentor are generally more confident and have greater self-esteem, are less likely to do drugs or drink alcohol, have greater academic success, and get along better with family and friends.
Center for Counseling
The Center for Counseling staff are a diverse group of experienced, licensed professionals who can assist during life’s journey. Our staff includes counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and play therapists.
From children to seniors, we are prepared to provide the type of counseling you or a loved one may need.
