The Children's Listening Place brings justice, hope, and healing to children in Wood, Wirt, Pleasants, and Ritchie Counties.

We promote a coordinated response that is compassionate, efficient, and puts the needs of children who are victims of abuse first.

We Help, Guide, and Protect Abused Children and their Families

Child advocacy centers (CACs) support and coordinate the efforts of a multidisciplinary team of professionals consisting of:

  • Law Enforcement Investigators
  • Prosecutors
  • Child Protective Service Workers
  • Medical Professionals
  • Mental Health Professionals
  • Victim Advocates

In the neutral setting of the child advocacy center, team members can collaborate on strategies that will aid investigators and prosecutors without causing further harm to the victim. This innovative, multidisciplinary approach significantly increases the likelihood of a successful outcome in court and long-term healing for the child.
