Tulsa County's child-friendly
advocacy center delivers a highly effective model for child abuse
The Child Abuse Network
(CAN) exists to reduce the trauma that a child abuse investigation
can pose for the child. Before our program came into being, children
frequently endured stressful examinations and numerous interviews
by various agencies, often in cold, sterile facilities.
Today CAN delivers a highly
effective alternative, bringing multiple agencies together in a
single, safe and comforting environment for children in crisis.
CAN enables medical, mental health, investigative and legal professionals
to work together under one roof, to provide less traumatic investigation
and to determine whether child abuse has occurred.
For an abused child, adjusting
to life after abuse is difficult.
CAN helps begin the healing.
