WHO WE ARE
Here at Comfort House Child Advocacy Center, we are driven by a single goal - to do our part in making the world a better place for children. Our mission is to serve victims of child sexual abuse through a coordinated intervention and to end the cycle of child abuse through education.
Comfort House Child Advocacy Center is in the business of changing and shaping lives of child abuse victims. The work we do here is aimed at providing a team approach to solving one of society’s biggest challenges: child sexual abuse.
Comfort House Child Advocacy Center is a dedicated member of the child abuse investigation team in Harrison County, Indiana. Our role on this team is to interview the child victim about their experiences. Speaking with children about the abuse they've suffered is not easy, but we believe conducting forensic interviews in a child-friendly, neutral manner will lead to the best outcomes for children. We are always striving to make a difference, and we invite you to learn more and lend your support.
We know how crucial it is to empower children with knowledge. Through our connections with local schools, we provide the Play It Safe! child abuse prevention program for students in pre-k through sixth grade at no cost to the students or schools. Students who participate in this program gain the skills and language necessary to help adults protect them from child abuse. Learn more about this program by getting in touch with our staff today.
ADULT PREVENTION PROGRAMS
Our child abuse prevention in the schools is something we take very seriously, but we recognize that children cannot protect themselves from abuse without the help of adults. With this in mind, Comfort House Child Advocacy Center implemented two child abuse prevention programs for adults: Stewards of Children and Protecting Your Children: Advice from Child Molesters. Schedule one of these programs today by getting in touch with our staff. We hope you will join us as we strive to find new strategies for eradicating child sexual abuse.
