Before ChildSafe was established, a child’s outcry of abuse didn’t necessarily mean the hurt was over.
For many young victims, it often meant the beginning of a stressful, scary, and difficult journey through the adult-minded criminal and civil justice systems, often times having to tell their story over and over again.
Due to the complex nature of these cases, our systems require the involvement of many different professionals to investigate, intervene, and prosecute.
ChildSafe provides a safe, child-friendly environment to ensure healing of the child and their family. We remove barriers to investigation and treatment, and enhance criminal prosecution with our distinctive multi-disciplinary and united approach to complex and severe child abuse cases.
To restore dignity, hope, and trust to children traumatized by abuse and neglect.
Who We Are
ChildSafe is the first stop for children entering the justice system because of sexual abuse, severe physical abuse, and those who have witnessed a violent crime.
Since 1992, because of ChildSafe, an estimated 75,000 individuals have recovered from the devastating effects of childhood trauma, developed healthy coping skills, and learned to break the cycle of abuse.
