we stand TALLEST when we stand TOGETHER- Darkness to Light Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training
The Center for Children is a nationally accredited children's advocacy center located in Grand Junction, Colorado, serving the 21st Judicial District. We are the first stop for children in Mesa County who are suspected victims of sexual and serious physical abuse and for children who may have witnessed a violent crime. The Center for Children is a child-friendly, specially equipped facility where children go for interviews, counseling and intervention during the investigation and prosecution of child abuse cases. There are 5 direct service departments - 1. Forensic Interviewing, 2. Family Support Advocacy, 3. SANE (sexual assault nurse examiner) Medical Program, 4. Mental Health, and 5. Prevention & Education. 

All services are provided at no charge, ever. Families need to focus on healing.
