Overview
Mission Statement: Work collaboratively to improve investigative, administrative,
prosecutorial, and judicial processes for child victims of abuse and neglect by
advancing systemic reform through innovative and evidence based policies,
programs, practices, and training.
Vision Statement: All child victims of abuse and neglect benefit from proven or
promising, accessible, family-driven, community-based practices which reduce
additional trauma to the child, ensure procedural fairness to all affected persons
and focus on meeting identified child and family needs.

every child.
We do this through...
Compassion
Creating systems that reflect genuine care and concern for vulnerable children and
families.
Collaboration
Synergistically working together valuing each other’s knowledge and expertise.
