TOPEKA, Kansas - Child Advocacy Centers across Kansas help support young children who have been victims of child abuse. Wednesday, Governor Mark Parkinson announced that $934,591 from the State Children's Advocacy Centers Grant Program will help these advocacy centers continue their work.
“Children’s Advocacy Centers provide a safe place for abused children to talk about difficult and frightening abuse,” said Parkinson. “I’m grateful these centers are available to our children, and I am pleased to assist them in carrying out their important mission.”
Assistance from the State Children’s Advocacy Centers Grant Program can be used to support staff salaries, forensic interviews or family support advocates who help connect families with local resources. For many centers, the grant program’s award is their primary source of funding.
Children’s Advocacy Centers are child-focused, child-friendly programs that coordinate the services to investigate, prosecute and treat child abuse. The Centers bring together a multi-disciplinary team that can include social workers, law enforcement officers, doctors, prosecutors, mental health professionals and victim advocates.
