Family Advocacy

Our Family Advocates provide crisis assessment and intervention,
safety planning, referrals for additional services, ongoing support, information and case updates, and court advocacy. There is a family advocate at each location. 

Our family advocates understand that children and families in crisis need assistance in navigating the multiple systems involved in the CAC response. More than one victim advocate may perform these functions at different points throughout a case, requiring continuity and consistency in service delivery. 

Our family advocates work with programs and partnerships to give back to our community and guide families through challenging times.
