VISION

MISSION

 That every child in Montana has access to a Children’s Advocacy Center and the expertise of professionals on a Multidisciplinary Team.

Provide support, training and technical assistance to professionals working on Multidisciplinary Teams and in Children’s Advocacy Centers to strengthen their response to child abuse and promote healing for victims and their families. 

 The Children’s Alliance of Montana is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide support, training and technical assistance to Children’s Advocacy Center’s and Multi-Disciplinary Teams across the State of Montana so that every child victim of abuse and his/her non-offending caregiver(s) has access to the services of a Children’s Advocacy Center and the expertise of a Multi-Disciplinary Team.

Children’s Advocacy Center’s and Multi-Disciplinary teams allow for centralized services to children who have been the victims of/or witnesses to crimes.  Collaboration between law enforcement, child protective services, prosecutors, medical providers, mental health counselors, and victim’s advocates are essential to meet the needs of the children and families who have been affected by crimes.
