                                                CHILD ADVOCATE

Our child advocate is here to help determine your childs needs. Maggie can help determine if your child is in need of further counseling or medical assistance and make appropriate referrals. Maggie works closely with the children and provides an objective person for your child to talk to. Children regardless of their age are affected by the abuse they have witnessed or been a part of. (For more information see our children page)

It is estimated that 600,000 children will be treated for abuse this year. Many will not survive! 50% of teenagers will experience abuse by the time they are 18.Children raised in violent homes are 6 times more likely to commit suicide, 26 times more likely to commit sexual assault, 57 times as likely to abuse drugs, and 74 times as likely to commit other violent crimes against persons.
Please give these silent victims a voice. If the noise you heard next door was from loud music or a wild party what would you do? 3 children die from child abuse related injuries each day in the U.S.A., if you suspect child abuse or neglect report it. Children need adults to act on their behalf. To report child abuse contact your local DHS. In Tennessee you may call1-877-237-0004. For more information on child abuse www.childhelpusa.org.
