When Amy* came to The Bridge, she wanted the abuse she was suffering at the hands of a family member to stop. It took tremendous courage to speak out, especially when family members did not support her. Amy grew to trust the specially-trained forensic interviewer who listened to her story. Thanks to the Children's Advocacy Model, Amy only had to share her story one time. This recorded interview was entered into evidence and an entire team of professionals went to work to protect Amy and provide her justice.
Amy's non-offending family members received resources to help in Amy's healing from a Bridge Family Advocate. This included a referral to a specially trained counselor who will help Amy become a child again in the wake of the abuse she suffered.
Your donations to The Bridge Children's Advocacy Center will help over 1500 children from the Texas Panhandle (all 26 counties). Your heart for children is beautiful!
