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 lessens  
the number of times the child has to retell what has happened.

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.
