Child Advocacy

The Child Abuse/Advocacy Service provides consultation and medical evaluation and treatment for victims of suspected child abuse and neglect.

Referrals are accepted from primary care medical providers, law enforcement, child protective services, or other community services. An official report of the suspected maltreatment should be made to child protective services or law enforcement prior to or in conjunction with a referral. Medical evaluations are closely coordinated with local investigatory efforts and reports are generated to the responsible investigatory agency.

Referral Inquiries should be made to Janna Adams.
