What have we been up to? I’m sure glad you asked.
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 Centers 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 Centers 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.
Nationwide, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused prior to their 18th birthdays. The Children’s Alliance of Montana is there to provide support for those who protect these children, and to minimize the trauma of the investigative process. Through training and services to local agencies, the Children’s Alliance of Montana has helped thousands of children and families whose lives have been impacted by sexual and physical abuse.
