The Campbell County Children’s Center is committed to the following:
Supporting CPIT – The state-mandated Child Protective Investigative Team as it investigates all reported cases of severe child abuse.
Mental Health Services – The center serves the counseling needs of sexually or severely physically abused children. The center offers and makes available counseling services to adults and to children with other behavior or emotional needs.
Forensic Interviews – The center employs a Forensic Interviewer, who is specially trained in interviewing children. The goal of the interviewer is to obtain a statement from a child in an objective, developmentally sensitive, and legally defensible manner. This reduces the number of times children are interviewed.
Sexual Assault Nurse Exam – The center provides the equipment and space for a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE), who performs physical exams on children who have been abused. In return, the SANE records the findings, and works closely with law enforcement, the center, Department of Children’s Services and the District Attorney General’s Office to ensure accuracy in investigation and prosecution.
Victim/Child Advocacy – The center employs staff who are knowledgeable about the dynamics of child abuse and the full scope of crisis intervention services needed by victims. Advocates support the emotional, physical and educational needs of those suffering from abuse.
Court Advocate- Provides emotional and financial support to victims during legal proceedings.
Prevention Education – Provides child abuse prevention education to the community as well as implementing a school based prevention program (NO, RUN, TELL) to children in grades K-3.
Family Advocate – Provides case management services to drug-endangered children and their non-offending family.
