About our Child Advocacy & Sexual Assault Center Program

Child Advocacy

From our environment to the services we offer, our focus is on the child and his/her non-offending caregiver(s). FAITH's Power House is able to offer a "kid-focused" coordinated team response to allegations of abuse by bringing together agencies and professionals involved in the investigation and intervention system. The multidisciplinary approach means that FAITH's Power House brings Law Enforcement, Child Protective Services, Medical Professionals, Forensic Interviewers, Mental Health Professionals and Advocates into one location, reducing the need for children and families to navigate a sometimes difficult and confusing system

Sexual Assault

FAITH's Power House is able to offer crisis intervention and prevention strategies for adult and child victims of sexual assault, rape, harassment and incest. The program offers victims' services and support. FAITH encourages and provides community education efforts to work toward the ultimate goal of ending sexual violence in our communities.

Forensic Interviews: A specially trained forensic interview offers the opportunity to communicate experiences in a manner that is legally sound and maximizes the child's abilities. Team members involved in the investigation, health and welfare of the child are able to observe the interview in a separate room that is non-intrusive to the child or caregiver.

Forensic Medical Exams: On-site exams are non-invasive and provided by specially trained Registered Nurse Practitioners. 
Trauma Focused Therapy and Crisis Counseling: An essential part of the healing process for children and families is receiving therapeutic services that help move them through the crisis and towards healthy relationships. 

Advocacy: Navigating the "system" can seem overwhelming and confusing. An advocate can help keep the focus on the child / victim, connect children and caregivers to team members and provide support through the legal process. 

Multidisciplinary Team Coordination: FAITH's Power House understands that with effective team member collaborations: communication is exchanged in a timely manner team members mutually benefit from the expertise and experience of others Innovative and child-focused responses are explored.
