About The Warren Washington Care Center

Why The Child Advocacy Center Model?

Before Child Advocacy Centers were created a child victim was interviewed, on average, five to seven different times by police officers at a police station, doctors or nurses in an emergency rooms, counselors, teachers, etc. Children had to relive their trauma over and over with several different individuals.

Now, Child Advocacy Centers provide a child friendly, safe, and confidential location for child victims and their non-offending family members. The Warren Washington CARE Center was built to be a warm and comforting place. The team of individuals, who specialize in child abuse cases and the victims, are under one roof at one time in an effort to avoid re-traumatizing children who are already suffering from pain, fear, and confusion.
No more emergency rooms. No more police stations. One safe and child friendly location; one time.

The strength of a team….
The work that is done at the Warren Washington CARE Center is truly a team effort. The members of the multidisciplinary team specialize in child abuse cases and many have made it their life’s work to help child victims of physical and sexual abuse. The MDT works together to reduce the trauma to the victims during the investigation and prosecution processes as well as conduct monthly case reviews to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses in each individual case.
