Our Family Advocacy Program provides an on-going, supportive relationship to our children and their families who are affected by sexual abuse. Our family advocates shepherd the family through the entire investigation process from beginning to end. They assist with appointment scheduling, crisis intervention, victim’s compensation filing, domestic violence intervention, court support, transportation, and linking to community resources. They are the first to greet our children when they arrive at Pat’s Place and the last to see them when they leave.
Provide guidance to families and community members dealing with abuse investigations and support families through system involvement.
Connect family with community resources, partner organizations and mental health providers.
Prepare children for court proceedings and be a supportive figure for families during hearings.
