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.
We are excited to add a new play area at Norma’s House! Various
volunteers have pledged their time to help Norma’s House build a fun,
landscaped playground!  Please donate to help us reach our goal of
$1,000.00 by October 22, 2014
to help cover the costs of the playground and landscaping!
