Children's Advocacy Center/Safe Passage
Safe Passage is at the center of an inter-agency collaborative effort that minimizes the trauma to victims of child abuse by centralizing services in one, child-friendly location. We act as team leader, coordinating the responses of our team partners in the medical, investigative, social service, legal, and mental health arenas. This holistic approach keeps investigations child-focused and ensures that children and caregivers receive the broadest range of support in the least intrusive manner possible.
Annually, Safe Passage serves more than 800 children and non-offending caregivers in the midst of abuse investigations. Safe Passage serves El Paso and Teller Counties as well as referrals from additional counties throughout Colorado. The services outlined below are always provided free of charge.
The mission of Safe Passage is to give abused children a voice and enable the healing process by acting as the single source of contact for medical, investigative, and legal services.
The grant from the Monument Hill Foundation supports the costs of forensic medical exams to child victims of sexual assault.
