A Story of Hope
One family - we'll call them the Randall Family - was referred to the CARE House by their local County Sheriff's Office following allegations of abuse by an extended family member. Jamie, a mother or 3, was concerned when she found explicit content on the family's shared tablet. When she approached her children (ages 5, 7, and 13) about it, her youngest shared the reason for her curiosity. Jamie's concern immediately turned to heartbreak as she heard her 5-year-old describe what Jamie understood to be sexual abuse perpetrated by her children's uncle.
From the moment that Jamie and her children arrived at the CARE House, they were met by supportive and experienced staff, who talked each child through a non-leading forensic interview before recommending counseling and other supportive services. Licensed, mater's level counselors worked in partnership with a multidisciplinary team representing many different agencies (including law enforcement) to investigate the allegations and support Jamie and her family - all within a safe and nurturing environment.
Now as Jamie and her family prepare for their upcoming trail, they are supported by a Child & Family Advocate, familiar with the lengthy legal process. Jamie and her family will need ongoing support as they head to court and her children's counseling continues. The CARE House will be with them each step along the way.
You can help families like the Randall's heal from their trauma through a gift to the CARE House.
