Who We Are and What We Do

The mission of the Friends of the Children's Justice Center charitable organization is to provide the support needed to help child victims of crime recover from the damaging physical, mental, and spiritual effects of their abuse. Through our fundraising efforts we help support the program costs, basic essential client needs, and furnishings for the facilities. Our fundraising efforts provide the means to finance specialized forensic equipment needed at the facilities which provide a private and comfortable environment for children already traumatized from the abuse they have experienced. Funding also provides specialized training for new caseworkers, detectives, and prosecutors to gain advanced skills in interviewing child victims for their witness statements about the crime which are essential so that healing and justice can begin. We exist to support the healing journey that no child should have to experience.

We serve to promote community awareness of child abuse and neglect in our community. Our awareness efforts include partnerships with existing agencies and community partners which can ultimately help in the prevention of child abuse.
