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 enables 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.
