Since 2005, Pat’s Place Child Advocacy Center has served as a multidisciplinary hub, bringing together detectives, child protection workers, medical and mental health providers and prosecutors to respond collaboratively to child sexual abuse allegations.

Our mission is to drive the resolution of child sexual abuse cases through investigation and collaboration with key partner agencies; provide a safe and compassionate environment that puts the well-being of the child first; break the cycle of abuse through training, education and community outreach. In 2017, we served 674 children primarily for child sexual abuse allegations, but also for severe neglect, physical abuse and witness to violence.
