Victim Advocacy Services
Victim Advocacy services are provided to the children and the parents/ guardians of the children who participate in forensic interviews. These services are designed to give support and education to children and their caregivers in a neutral, safe, and supportive setting.
Our Victim Advocate meets with the supportive caregiver during the forensic interview to provide information about the Robertson County Child Advocacy Center and the services we offer. A crisis interview explores the abuse-related needs of the caregivers, provides education on the investigative process, and provides general reassurance and support. The Victim Advocate provides ongoing support to non-offending caregivers and their children throughout the investigative and healing process, including court support if the child is required to testify during criminal proceedings. Victim Advocacy services are tailored to meet the specific needs of each family.
Victim Advocacy can include:
Support and Reassurance
Referrals for Services
Victim’s Compensation Assistance
Court Preparation and Trial Accompaniment
