Care House is Macomb County's Child Advocacy Center. We provide services to child victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse and children who may have witnessed violence. Care House works with law enforcement, child protective services and the prosecutor’s office to reduce trauma for child victims of abuse by coordinating a forensic interview. A trained forensic interviewer listens as the child shares his or her story. Representatives from law enforcement, the prosecutor’s office, child protective services, and mental health professionals observe the interview in a different part of the building via closed-circuit television. This eliminates the need for the child to repeat his or her story and relive the trauma of the abuse over and over again. Care House helps child victims and their families heal by providing a child-friendly place for services, including forensic interviews, crisis counseling, individual and group therapy, family advocacy and referrals to community resources, all at no cost to the families we serve. Child abuse is devastating. With the right kind of help, children and their families can heal and move on with their lives. Since opening its doors in 1996, Care House has conducted over 7,000 forensic investigative child interviews, and provided services to over 9,000 families.
