November 18, 2014 - Baltimore Child Abuse Center is pleased to announce two job openings as we expand our Family Advocacy Team.
Our Family Advocacy (FA) Team is the first point of contact for victims of child sexual abuse, sexual assault, other crimes and exposure to violence, as well as for their non-offending caregivers. The focus of victim support and advocacy is to help reduce trauma for the child and non-offending family members and to improve outcomes. The FA team also helps the non-offending caregiver to identify and access services the family may need and encourages them to participate in the investigation, prosecution, treatment and support services. This team also develops a comprehensive network of mental health service providers that will be used in making treatment referrals for the families.
