About One with Courage:
“One With Courage is a national initiative centered around the courage it takes to talk about child sexual abuse and the unique role Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) play in providing comprehensive, coordinated and compassionate services to child victims of abuse. The Children’s House is the CAC available to abused child victims and their families in Bradford County, Pennsylvania and surrounding areas. Since 2010, The Children’s House has provided services to over 400 children in our communities. Each child is one that had the courage to speak out because one caring adult had the courage to listen. Are you one with courage? Visit www.OneWithCourage.org to understand more and to join the movement.”
A community partnership is required to protect, heal and care for abused children. Child abuse can be a scary topic. When the abuse affects your family or someone you care for, the fear and anxiety experienced can be overwhelming. The Children’s House/Child Advocacy Center is here to provide immediate assistance to help child abuse victims and their families or loved ones through this difficult time.
We provide a safe, child-friendly facility with a home-like atmosphere where children and their families can go to report abuse and begin their recovery.
