About US

History

In 1986, a group of professionals representing various segments of the justice system formed a task force to address the trauma that child victims of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse were suffering as a result of the policies and procedures within the system.

Representatives of law enforcement, social service agencies, the District Attorney’s office, the medical community, victim advocate groups, therapists, psychologists, concerned citizens, and business leaders have come together to work to reduce the trauma suffered by children and improve the services delivered to families.

Join Us
