Jane's Place facilitates a Multiple Disciplinary Team of professionals who investigate and prosecute allegations of abuse and provide services to help the child and their family heal from the trauma of abuse.
Services provided through Jane's Place and our partners include:
A Child Advocacy Center offers ONE place for kids suspected of having suffered abuse that provides a safe, child-friendly environment where law enforcement, child protective services, prosecution, medical and mental health professionals may share information and develop effective, coordinated strategies sensitive to the needs of each unique case and child. We offer tours of our facility to individuals/groups interested in learning more about what we do.
In addition to services provided directly to victims of abuse, Jane's Place also offers services to the community with a focus on prevention. Our Outreach Coordinator works with children in the classroom to teach them how to keep their bodies safe and what to do should they experience abuse. We can also provide a speaker for your organization to talk about child abuse prevention, Internet safety, grooming, and domestic minor sex trafficking.
