About The Dragonfly House

What We Do

Changing the system of child abuse, children's advocacy centers bring every process that a child must go through underneath one safe, neutral roof. We provide Forensic Interview, Child Abuse Medical Examinations, Victim Advocacy, Mental Health Treatment, Multi-Disciplinary Teamwork, Coordinated Case Review Services, and Community Outreach.

These services are provided to boys and girls, ages birth through 17, who have experienced (or are suspected of experiencing) physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect and/or are witness to violence.
