FIGHTING BACK... TOGETHER.
The reality is that many children in Lancaster County and throughout Pennsylvania are abused. The Lancaster County Children’s Alliance, as a Children’s Advocacy Center, brings together in one location child abuse professionals who can support the needs of the child victims and their families.
A Children’s Advocacy Center is woven and tied together by community agencies and professionals. The team works together to reduce the trauma victims experience and enhance the ability to respond to child maltreatment.
The Lancaster County Children’s Alliance embraces the fundamental elements that make up the ten NCA Standards for Accredited Members. Seven core disciplines form a multi-disciplinary team and lead the investigation with efficiency. Team members and LCCA staff provide services to victims and non-offending family members at child-friendly facilities.
The Lancaster County Children’s Alliance believes a joint investigative approach, where information can flow seamlessly among the professionals who need it- assists families, helping them understand the system and refer to needed resources and services.
Like the quilts Lancaster County is known for, the Children’s Alliance brings together individual pieces to form a source of comfort for victims and the families from beginning to end.
