Mission Statement

Excellence in the assessment, treatment, and prevention of child abuse, neglect, trauma, and grief in order to promote health and hope in children, youth, families and communities.

Description

Since 1999, Liberty House has provided child-focused, high quality assessment services to children when adults are concerned that they may have been hurt by sexual abuse, physical abuse or neglect. With compassion and expertise, medical providers conduct complete medical examinations for the children coming to Liberty House. Specially trained child interviewers also help children talk about what has happened to them in a neutral and sensitive manner to ensure the objectivity of the assessment and the wellbeing of the child.

Complementing the assessment are family support services for caregivers, including information and resources for keeping children safe and healthy. Follow up mental health services for children and their caregivers is available at Hope & Wellness Services here on our campus.

Liberty House also provides medical consultations to the community about child abuse questions and offers community education and outreach about the issue of child abuse and its prevention.

Liberty House serves children from birth to age 18. Our services are voluntary and free of cost to the family. All services are carefully coordinated with local law enforcement and child welfare agencies in order to provide the highest levels of support for children and families. "It was and is a difficult time for us. My daughter still sleeps with the bear and quilt you gave her. You helped her a great deal in handling her trauma," said one mother.
