Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center is a not for profit multidisciplinary team serving child victims of sexual or physical abuse in Snohomish County, Washington. Law enforcement, child protective services, medical, victim advocacy, prosecution, and mental health agencies all work together to provide the best possible services to children and their families victimized by sexual or physical abuse.

Dawson Place provides comfort for children caught up in a chaotic situation by welcoming them into a child friendly setting that promotes healing. Children and families benefit from having a single point of contact with many agencies in one place. Intervention and treatment in child abuse cases is strengthened as a result of having many disciplines working together toward common goals, which include support and services for the child and holding offenders accountable.

There is a significant need for comprehensive services for child abuse victims. One in four girls and one in six boys will be victims of sexual abuse during their childhood. This means that in Snohomish County, there are potentially 36,000 children in need of intervention and treatment. Dawson Place addresses this issue by implementing an efficient and child-centered services and treatment model.

Since opening our doors in 2006, we have cared for over 7,500 abused children birth to 18 years old. Dawson Place is an accredited Child Advocacy Center through the National Children’s Alliance (NCA). During our most recent accreditation,  the NCA

was “highly impressed with our skilled staff, carefully-coordinated and integrated services and the quality of care received by abuse victims and their families.” They stated that Dawson Place is “one of the best Child Advocacy Centers in the nation”.  

Every child deserves to  be happy
