The Heart to Heart Program is moving

 

This month, the Heart to Heart Child Advocacy Center is moving to a new location within the Ginger Lynn Welch Complex. The Heart to Heart Child Advocacy Center works with a team of professionals who coordinate the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child abuse. The center provides licensed therapists specializing in child related trauma, court accompaniment, court school, community prevention presentations, on site forensic interviews, trauma therapy for child victims, and family therapy for non-offending caregivers.

The confidentiality of the clients utilizing the services of the Heart to Heart Child Advocacy Program are paramount to fostering a safe and welcoming environment.

The program faced challenges with many issues in the former location and the move will provide better facilities to accommodate administrative offices, children interview rooms, counseling rooms, and medical treatment facilities. The phone numbers and email addresses will remain the same. The program will be located adjacent to the Qualla Boundary Public Library at the Ginger Welch Complex in the previous Human Resources Suite.

Feel free to contact the Heart to Heart Program with any questions. Program officials noted, “It is essential to the success of the Heart to Heart Program to protect the confidentiality of our most vulnerable population and the relocation of the program offices will accomplish that goal.”
