Our Approach to Child Advocacy and Associated Support Services
At the CAMC Children’s Advocacy Center, we’re here to provide specialized, compassionate care to children and families in situations involving child neglect and abuse – whether physical or sexual.
Forensic Interview: We conduct a thorough forensic evaluation of the child to identify his or her needs and facilitate the provision of the services needed. This interview is conducted in a non-threatening, non-leading and child-friendly way.
Medical Evaluation: A medical interview is also conducted by our specialty-certified pediatricians. The evaluations are conducted in a way that is thorough yet sensitive to each child’s emotional and physical state.
Support Services: We provide a variety of victim advocacy and case management services to help you and your child as you move forward. We work with a number of agencies that are responsible for responding to child abuse.
Therapy: We offer trauma-focused therapy on-site for children.
Family are never charged for services at the Children’s Advocacy Center.
