To provide a comfortable, child-friendly atmosphere where children receive coordinated services during the child abuse investigative process.
The Friends of the Salt Lake County Children’s Justice Center is a 501c3 Nonprofit Charity established in 1993 to benefit child victims of crime by supporting the mission and purpose of the Children’s Justice Center program. We are a group of concerned citizens that volunteer our time to manage all the non-profit activities.
Our main purpose is to educate the community about the wonderful services at the Children’s Justice Center so that child abuse victims can obtain access to caring help from expert staff.
Our second purpose is to raise funds to support the program costs, client needs, equipment, furnishings and facilities. One of our top funding priorities is to for the child or teen to tell a trained professional about what happened to support specialized training for new caseworkers, detectives and prosecutors to gain advanced skills in interviewing child victims for their witness statements about the crime. These important interviews are the first experience them so that healing and justice can begin. When the child or teen feels safe and supported during the interview process they can feel reassured that caring professionals are looking out for their best interest and help them gain access to counseling or expert medical care if needed.
