Mental health therapists provide counseling, while advocates work with family throughout the crisis. All services are provided at no cost. The Center opened its doors in October of 2000 and has provided services to more than 16,000 child abuse victims. In addition to serving child abuse victims, the Center provides child abuse prevention education to school-aged children, grades K-12. More than 45,000 children have been empowered to protect themselves in a world where sometimes adults can no longer.
