Valley Children’s Center
and Patrick James had an event to help support the Valley Children's Center at the Staunton Auto Group. They had an old fashioned pig roast. MmmMmmGood. Peck's BBQ provided the sides.
The Valley Children’s Center is a non-profit agency designed to reduce the trauma and advance the recovery of abused and neglected children. The Center provides a comfortable, private, child-friendly setting where abused and neglected children can be interviewed by a trained Forensic Interviewer in partnership with Law Enforcement and Child Protective Services. These interviews are recorded for use by the Commonwealth’s Attorney to enhance the investigation of abuse allegations.
The Center also offers the following services:
crisis intervention counseling to the victim, non-offending caregivers and siblings.
-A SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) program for medical evaluations of victims to be performed locally at Augusta Medical Center.
-Programs to enhance our community’s understanding of child abuse and neglect through public awareness campaigns and educational components in local schools.
