Mission Statement

The mission of the Kids' FIRST Center is to help lessen the trauma experienced by abused children going through the criminal justice system.

Description

The Kids' FIRST Center opened its doors in September of 1994 as a free-standing, private non-profit organization with a board of directors and under the direct supervision of the Lane County District Attorney's Office. The Center offers a warm, non-threatening setting where child victims can give videotaped interviews about their experiences, receive medical exams to aid in criminal investigations and testify before the grand jury. The Center also provides referrals to agencies throughout the community to help meet the financial, mental and physical health needs of victims and their non-offending family members and offers educational support groups for parents of sexually abused children.
