Center for Children
The Center for Children is a nationally accredited children’s advocacy center and is a child-friendly, specially equipped facility where children go for interviews, counseling and intervention during the investigation and prosecution of child abuse cases. The Center for Children helps ensure the needs of abused children and their families in our community are met by facilitating and coordinating the work of existing agencies such as the Mesa County District Attorney’s Office, mental health providers, the medical community, the Mesa County Department of Human Services and local law enforcement agencies, which include the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office and the Grand Junction, Fruita and Palisade police departments. The center also provides direct, supportive services to victims, families and individuals. All services are provided at no charge.
