Our Services


 

The Manistee County Child Advocacy Center will provide a range of Services to help children and families.

Some of these services are:

Supervised Visitation/Safe Exchange

Through the supervised visitation program, we hope to make the separation between child and parent less traumatic and help the child build and maintain healthy relationships with their parents.  There are times when it is necessary for visitation between the child and parent to be supervised.  We also hope to educate parents about how to work together to minimize the effects of separation.

Forensic interviewing

A neutral, non-leading interview of a child regarding an allegation of abuse.  The forensic interview is a coordinated approach by police, prosecutor, and human services so that the child is not repeatedly interviewed about the allegation.

Child Advocate

The child Advocate will offer crisis counseling and on-going support to child victims and their non-offending family members.

We have much work to accomplish and with your yelp we can make the Advocacy Center a wonderful resource for vulnerable children and their families.
