"The staff at our Child Advocacy Center was very friendly and concerned about my child's well-being. From day one they were ready to support us through the entire process. Some days, we looked forward to getting out of school so that we could go to counseling, while other days we didn't think we had the strength to address the situations at hand. Regardless, every session was successful. We felt comfortable and I know our family would not have made it through this difficult time if we had not had the support of our Child Advocacy Center. Child Advocacy Centers offer words of encouragement and hope."
