MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen is pleased to announce grant awards of $17,000 to each of Wisconsin’s Child Advocacy Centers, which provide comprehensive services for child victims and their families. The centers across Wisconsin coordinate services from law enforcement and criminal justice agencies, child protective services, victim advocacy agencies and health care providers.
“Victimizing a child is an unimaginable act, but sadly, we know it occurs far too often,” Attorney General Van Hollen said. “These centers are designed to bring the various disciplines together to care for child victims as law enforcement works toward holding the offender accountable.”
Each of the following centers will receive $17,000, as directed by Wis. Stats. 16.964(14), for education, training, medical advice, and quality assurance activities:
These grants, administered through the Office of Crime Victim Services at the Wisconsin Department of Justice, do not provide funding for direct services. State funds support the professional development, service improvement, medical consultation, and evaluation in Wisconsin’s 14 Child Advocacy Centers.
