ABOUT YOUR VISIT
Everyone who visits can sit down one-on-one with an experienced advocate who will serve as your guide for getting the help you and your children need. You can expect a warm and comfortable place, and will see that safety is our top priority. Our building was specifically designed to provide you (and your children) a secure environment. We will keep everything you tell us in the strictest confidence, and don't share your information without your permission.
We know that often times your children have already heard more than you would like. We want you to feel comfortable talking openly with us, so we have a fun playroom full of toys available for your children in order to keep them entertained during your visit.
All of our clients will complete an intake with an Advocate. At this time a risk assessment and safety plan may be completed, and the Advocate will review all of the services offered so you can decide what you would like to do.
