Hours of Operation:
The Children's Advocacy Center is the front door for children to walk through when there have been allegations that they have suffered sexual or severe physical abuse. A protocol is in place with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and law enforcement agencies, requiring children to be interviewed by a forensic specialist in our child-friendly setting, utilizing a multi-disciplinary approach. A family advocate on staff assists the family throughout the court process, and a trained and licensed therapist is on staff to work with the child victims and their non-offending family members.
