Advocacy Centers in Oregon

There are currently 20 child advocacy centers in the State of Oregon. Oregon is but one of many states to utilize centers in helping children suspected to be victims of abuse and/or domestic violence. As each county in our state is required to have a Multi-disciplinary Team to review child abuse cases, each county is also required to have services in place that ensure that every child reasonably suspected to be abused has access to therapeutic medical assessments (ORS 418.780 - 418.796 Statutes). Furthermore, the Center is an active member of the Oregon Child Abuse Solutions.
