The Bridge of Hope Child Advocacy Center routinely provides children who have suffered physical, sexual and/or emotional harm resulting from child abuse/neglect, the opportunity to disclose in a non-threatening, child friendly environment, with the support of a coordinated Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) response. The Bridge of Hope Child Advocacy Center provides forensic interviews, medical evaluations, and ongoing advocacy to the child and non-offending caregiver.

Advocates establish linkages with counselors, criminal justice advocacy organizations, financial/housing/public assistance programs, VINE, the courts and domestic violence intervention programs, to facilitate necessary support to provide victims of crime and their families with a measure of safety and security. Advocates function as a conduit between the victim/caregiver and MDT members by providing routine case status updates. Ongoing advocacy generates increased participation in the prosecution process increasing the potential for a conviction and the reduction of permanent trauma. All services provided are at no cost to the victim.
