Kid’s Place/ A Child Advocacy Center


Kid’s Place has been providing services to child victims of abuse in the 22nd Judicial District since 1999. The agency’s mission is to reduce the trauma of child abuse by providing a child-focused environment for the coordinated intervention, multidisciplinary investigation, and treatment of child sexual and severe physical abuse in Lawrence, Wayne, Giles, and Maury Counties of Middle Tennessee. The agency’s goals/outcomes for the year include: 30 of 40 (75%) children will demonstrate a reduction in at least two symptoms related to PTSD using the UCLA PTSD Reaction Index. 100 of 125 (80%) of caregivers receiving individualized Family Advocate sessions will demonstrate an increased sense of safety and security on the Caregiver Follow-Up Survey.
