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 at Dawson Place to deliver the very best 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 the common goal of protecting and healing children.
There is a significant need for the services provided by Dawson Place. 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 tested and effective child-centered services and treatment model.
Dawson Place serves approximately 25 new child abuse victims per week; over 1200 per year. We are an accredited Child Advocacy Center through the National Children’s Alliance (NCA).
