Child & Family Advocacy, Investigation, Violence Prevention & Education Services
The child welfare system can be overwhelming, particularly since traumatic events have occurred in an individual’s life. Often non-offending caregivers have no guidance through a maze of the legal system and social service agencies. Because maltreatment and trauma affects the entire community and very little funds and services are available, gaps that exist lend to victims falling through cracks.
This organization recognizes the problems within the system and proposes to examine the gaps in the social service system, fill those gaps and collaborate with other advocates to foremost prevent future abuse and trauma, and to finally support and empower children and families as they recover from abuse and trauma that has been experienced.
