The Advocacy Center on the C.A.R.E. campus provides a warm home-like environment for children who must be interviewed about incidents of physical and sexual abuse. The Garfield County Child Advocacy Council enhanced the quality of the community’s response to child abuse by establishing a comprehensive coordinated system accredited by the National Children’s Alliance.
Safe Children. Strong Families. Secure Community.
The Center coordinates child-oriented procedures to protect abused children. The Center provides a place for effective interviews that are sensitive to the child's immediate and future needs while still promoting the flow of information needed to determine if prosecution of an adult is warranted. The immediate care of the child, the interviews necessary to substantiate the abuse and the initiation of mental health procedures are all coordinated under one roof, the Center.
