CARE House

CARE House was established in 1998 as a result of a community task force that wanted to ensure that abused children did not fall through the cracks of the service delivery system. Today, CARE House offers support and hope to children and families in the community serving hundreds of victims of child abuse each year. CARE House serves as a role model for best practices to other children’s advocacy centers nationwide.
