Children's Justice & Advocacy Center in Kelso has been Nationally Accredited

The Children's Justice & Advocacy Center (CJAC) in Kelso, WA first opened in 2009 after years of planning by several community members dedicating to protecting the children in our community. CJAC is a central location for members of a multidisciplinary team (which includes law enforcement, prosecution, CPS, Advocacy, etc) working on child abuse investigations to gather. Before CJAC, when allegations of abuse came to light, the child had to speak to several different people, in different settings, re-living their trauma over and over. With CJAC, the child is interviewed by a trained Child Forensic Interviewer, and only has to share their story once, in a safe, child friendly environment, saving the child from further trauma.

CJAC became a federally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 2012, and as of October 2013 been awarded National Accreditation from the National Children's Alliance (NCA).

If any groups would like a presentation on CJAC and the ways in which it helps the children within our community, please contact Sue Baur (President) and Christi Brittain (Interim Executive Director).
