OUR MISSION

The Luzerne County Child Advocacy Center is committed to the protection of all children who have become victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect. The center strives to create a child friendly, safe environment to conduct joint interviews and investigations, along with a comfortable setting for medical examinations and a base of staff support.

The center is dedicated to the following:

1. Reducing the number of interviews that a child must endure by implementing a multi-disciplinary approach.

2. Reducing the trauma associated with the hospital setting for medical examinations.

3. Increasing the number of offenders held accountable for committing crimes against children.

4. Providing quality, culturally sensitive services to the victims of abuse and their families, regardless of race, ethnicity, language, or cultural differences.
