Current Project: Helping Children Heal after Abuse
MercyOne's Child Advocacy Center helps families deal with the unthinkable - their child being sexually, physically and/or emotional abused.
Over the last 30 years MercyOne Siouxland's Child Advocacy Center has provided care to more than 20,000 children and is the only one of its kind within 100 miles of Sioux City. The problem of child abuse is not going away, last year 700 children walked through the doors of our Child Advocacy Center to begin their journey of healing.
Because of this, we know how important it is to provide a safe place for children to tell their story and receive medical treatment and counseling - giving them hope for a brighter future.
Our multi-disciplinary team works together in the investigation, treatment, and prosecution of child abuse cases. The average cost for a visit for each victim is $1,295 but no family EVER recieves a bill for services.
We hope you will join us in being part of the solution to prevent, intervene and treat abused children.
