|Gonzales Regional Children's Advocacy Center
|Serving Gonzales & Lavaca Counties
A child who has been abused is forever changed. Child victims of abuse
need the careful attention of professionals trained to address their
special needs. In the past, each victim seeking help faced multiple
contacts with different community professionals, creating a maze of
confusion for the child and family.
With the support of our community, Norma's House enables children to
come to one place for safety, protection, and justice instead of going
from agency to agency. Children who may have been sexually or
physically abused are referred to NH by law enforcement and CPS.
When children arrive, they are welcomed by caring staff, volunteers, and
investigative professionals. Norma's House provides an environment
which reflects the physical and emotional atmosphere of a home, rather
than that of a clinic or institution.
Imagine your child or grandchild having to give his or her account of
abuse to strangers over and over. A specially trained forensic
interviewer talks with the
child to determine the details about the abuse. The forensic interview
the child to only have to tell their story once.
After the interview, the child and any non-offending family member are
offered counseling with one of our 2 licensed professional counselors.
There is no cost to our families for any of our services.
