What is a Child Advocacy Center?

Why We Serve:

Every day children victimized by abuse come to the Butterfly Bridge Children's Advocacy Center where they find caring professionals and community partners who dedicate themselves to helping them through the nightmare of abuse and neglect. The Center provides a friendly environment where children can safely tell their story and receive the support they need. Within the Center, families find support, resources, and most importantly a place where healing begins.

How We Do It:

Providing security, restoration, and justice at the Children’s Advocacy Center is a team effort. We have a close relationship with local law enforcement, child protective services, therapists, caseworkers, interns, nurses, and volunteers, forming a strong team able to handle the most difficult of situations. Additionally, we work hand-in-hand with the District Attorney’s office. Every day our team provides families security, support and the resources they need for restoration to some semblance of normal life.
