We'll discuss what kinds of cases are referred to KIDS Center for evaluations. We'll also talk about different prevention strategies we can do in our daily lives. This presentation is ideal for organizations, businesses, or groups that are interested in learning more about the types of abuse present in our community and what we can do to protect kids and families.

KIDS Center is a medical model Children's Advocacy Center (CAC) providing child abuse evaluations that include a head-to-toe medical exam, child-friendly forensic interview, family advocacy, and mental health services to children and families impacted by abuse. In addition, our services include prevention programs to help teach adults in our community how to better protect children from abuse.

Children are referred for a KIDS Center evaluation by one of four community partners including law enforcement, DHS Child Welfare, medical providers, and licensed mental health professionals. Children and families can engage in KIDS Center advocacy and mental health services without participating in an evaluation. All of KIDS Center services are provided at no cost.
