Child & Family Advocacy

What is an Advocate and why do I need one?

Our Advocates are trained and knowledgeable of the investigative and court process and are assigned to the families of all children served at the center to guide them through the system, offer support, and provide education and resources to the caregivers. Even with support from the individuals working on the case, the very nature of the investigation can be traumatic.


What kind of services does the Advocate provide?

  • Crisis intervention during the initial visit.
  • Information regarding the criminal justice system.
  • Consistent contact person throughout the justice process.
  • Enhancing the cooperation of the family in the court process.
  • Accompanying the child and non-offending parent to court.
  • Resources to community services, i.e., housing, food, job services, clothing.
