10 years ago, S.A.R.A. House Child Advocacy Center was established to assist in the investigative process of child sexual abuse cases. It was founded to provide a child-friendly, safe, and neutral enviroment where police investigators and detectives, social workers, mental health therapists, and medical professionals can talk with children and their families in surroundings that would lessen the anxiety of a child who has been victimized or is witness to a crime. Children and teens who have been sexually or physically abused can tell their stories to trained forensic interviewers, undergo comprehensive medical exams performed by specially trained sexual assault examiners and receive victim advocacy services in a safe, respectful environment as they begin to heal from the trauma they have experienced without being re-traumatized in the process. S.A.R.A. House is the only child advocacy center in the Thirteenth Judicial District, State of Colorado
Our mission for 10 years has been to empower victims of sexual assault through direct client services; by educating the community to impact deep seated beliefs and behaviors; and to develop a coordinated community response to the crime of sexual assault. We are still striving for that!
