Our history. Our future.
The idea for Citrus County Children’s Advocacy Center bloomed from a community meeting, held April 2005, which focused on a national trend towards child-oriented, victim sensitive methods for delivering services to abused children. Over the following months and years, countless volunteers came together to create the center, known as Jessie’s Place.
Jessie’s Place provides a kid-focused approach to child abuse care through the coordination of professional and specialty agency services.
