Our Staff

Whether it is training labor and delivery nurses to educate new parents on coping with crying babies, or coordinating 40 law enforcement investigators to learn how to interview children, our staff  and contractors made up of committed child advocates, are the best at what they do. Together we focus on meeting community needs for strategies that keep children safe.
