Not every child exposed to traumatic events reacts in the same way. All children are unique, and many children are able to adapt to and overcome difficult events and situations. It is our goal at the Child and Family Advocacy Center of South Central Minnesota to assist children and families in their ability and opportunity to heal after traumatic events.

Our staff’s Child and Family Advocate works with families to help them access trauma-focused, evidence-based counseling services with therapists who understand the ongoing effects of trauma and how it can impact an entire family. The Child and Family Advocate can provide appropriate referrals to community resources.
