Child Abuse Treatment Services (CATS)

Child Abuse Treatment Services (CATS)

Child abuse takes a toll on children and families. This program responds with immediate, flexible, and appropriate clinical services.

The people we serve:

  • Children and adolescents (ages 4-17) who are victims of physical or sexual abuse, or witness to domestic violence.
  • The families of such children.
  • Community referrals are accepted.

How the program works:

  • All services are voluntary and free of charge to victims and their families. The CATS program is funded through a grant from the Office of Victims Services.
  • The program is staffed by experienced mental health professionals with specialized clinical training.
  • The program utilizes a Trauma Focus Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) model, whenever possible.
  • Services include, but are not limited to, individual, group, and/or family therapy, personal advocacy, justice support, crisis counseling, follow-up, and parent support services.
  • Services are individualized and tailored to the needs of the family.
