What We Do To Help

Jessie’s Place is a Children’s Advocacy Center designed to be warm and welcoming, so that child victims of abuse and neglect have a safe haven to tell their story and begin the road to recovery.  We provide all necessary services onsite – at one location – to help traumatized children feel like happy children once again.

Provided services include:

  • Utilization of video and audio recording technology during fact gathering law enforcement interviews, therefore greatly reducing the sessions required for case investigation and prosecution.
  • Warm, comfortable and state-of-the-art medical examination rooms.
  • Medical Diagnosis, Evaluation and Nursing Assessment provided by the University of Florida Child Protection Team – noted field experts.
  • Crisis intervention counseling to help child victims overcome physical and emotional damage.
  • Therapeutic services and victim advocacy for children and non-offending caregivers.
  • Referrals to partner agencies for long-term counseling needs
