The Child Advocacy Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to lessening the trauma experiences by child victims when abuse allegations are investigated. Here, victims can find caring professionals who help them through the nightmare of abuse and neglect. Within the Center, families can find support and resources - but most importantly they find a place where healing can begin.
The services provided by Pine Hills Advocacy Center would not be possible without the caring individuals that volunteer their time and talents to assist the Center in many different capacities. All our services are of no cost to our victims and our families because of generous donations, fundraising projects, as well as grants applied for by Pine Hills.
