Arizona Advocacy Centers

What is an Advocacy Center?
An Advocacy Center is a comprehensive, victim focused program based in a facility that allows law enforcement, child protection professionals, prosecutors, victim advocates, forensic interviewers, medical professionals and mental health providers to work together when intervening in and investigating violent crimes against children and adults. Advocacy Centers are designed by communities to meet their own needs, so there are many types of facilities in which centers exist. The overall goal of all Advocacy Centers is to ensure that the victims that are entrusted to the centers are not further victimized by the systems that are designed to protect them.

More about Advocacy Centers

"This study involved a comparative analysis of child abuse investigations conducted in the Mesa area before and after the opening of the Center Against Family Violence (CAFV)." Cases included serious physical and sexual abuse cases investigated by the Mesa Police Department and/or Arizona's Child Protective Services during 1995 - 1998. Findings indicate positive effects of the CAFV and resulting benefits to child victims.
