Healing Starts Here.
The Navajo County Family Advocacy Center’s mission is to improve the lives of the physically abused, sexually abused, neglected, drug-endangered, and at-risk children. We work to provide support through identification, prevention, and treatment of child abuse.
Before our center opened, child victims who needed a forensic interview were transported by law enforcement to centers more than 100 miles away. They often had to tell their story multiple times causing them to be re-traumatized.
Since our center opened in May 2011, we have provided services to more than 1200 children.
How Do We Help
Our center provides forensic interviews, which is a structured conversation with a child intended to elicit detailed information about a possible event that the child may have experienced or witnessed. Forensic Interviews are conducted by a specially trained, caring professional.
