"I can never forget what
happened to me, but if you have to keep telling the story over
and over, you keep remembering the story and it expands."
"T.J." ~ Former child
"We want all of the
services that are most likely to be utilized in the
prosecution of a child abuse case to be located at the same
place. We want to decrease the trauma to the child."

"The team approach that the
Children's Advocacy Center promotes makes the investigations
much more efficient and effective for the investigation
agencies, victims and their families."

"Sometimes the child can
get lost in the system. Now we have a single place that
focuses on the needs of the child. That place is
child-centered, and draws the focus of everyone who is
involved to the child."
