The Safe Harbor Child Advocacy Center

The Safe Harbor Child Advocacy Center works to reduce the trauma that child victims of abuse face by coordinating and strengthening the community response to the abuse. The agency provides a child-friendly program that helps representatives from law enforcement, Child Protective Service, prosecution, victim/witness, medical and mental health to work together to conduct interviews and make team decisions on cases of child abuse. The program provides forensic interviewing services, forensic medical evaluations and exams, victim advocacy and support, specialized mental health services and case management.

The process is started at the moment of first report and followed until the victim and family no longer require services. Safe Harbor provides support in helping these children and nonoffending caregivers by providing case management, on-site specialized trauma therapy and ongoing support, all at no cost to the family.

Since opening May 1, 2009, there has been an increase in the number of children coming to Safe Harbor. As a result of the increased needs, goals for Safe Harbor include moving to a larger facility and growing the programs and services to accommodate the need. Support from the community will assure that the child’s healing process starts at Safe Harbor. For further information on how you can help, visit www.safeharborva.org.
