Our mission is to put an end to child abuse.

Child abuse is too common. You hear heartbreaking stories on the news and wonder how these families will ever move on. At The Dragonfly House Children’s Advocacy Center, we recognize the prevalence of child abuse in our community and provide supportive services to children and their families affected by these difficult, life-altering investigations.

Child Abuse

As a children’s advocacy center, we provide completely free, comprehensive services to children involved in a child abuse investigation. We provide these services all under one roof in a convenient, comfortable, and child-focused environment designed for boys and girls from birth to 17 years of age. These services include medical evaluations, coordinated case management, mental health support, forensic interviews, and any other process required to facilitate an open investigation.

Before children’s advocacy centers existed, abused and neglected children had no continuity in their care and were forced to visit many agencies, having to relive the trauma during and after every visit. Now, children’s advocacy centers offer victims and their families a safe, inviting space where all aspects of the trauma can be recorded and safeguarded for child protection and law enforcement personnel, as well as judicial proceedings under one roof.

Our mission is to put an end to the devastating effects of child abuse, and your donation or support as a volunteer is more important than ever. Contact us today to find out more about how you can support our organization and help child victims struggling to overcome the trauma of abuse.
