Working Together to Help Children Heal

Implement_Standard_MeasuresChildren's advocacy centers provide a way for communities to respond to children who have been sexually, emotionally or physically abused by bringing together service providers to help them heal. With support from The Duke Endowment, 30 centers across the Carolinas worked together to develop an evaluation process to help them measure their impact using a uniform method. By 2008, the new model was already making a difference at the centers... and in children's lives.
