To provide continued support for the Senior Director during the second year of operation of the Bronx Child Advocacy Center (“CAC”). Safe Horizon has achieved its long-time goal of having a fully co-located CAC in each of the City’s five Boroughs. Their CACs bring together under one roof all of the services that a child victim, its parents and its advocates need, including: the Administration for Children’s Services; the NYC Police Department; District Attorney Representatives; and medical providers. The co-located approach minimizes the need for repeated interviewing, reduces the risk of further trauma, and helps the child and family to heal and obtain justice in a more expedited and coordinated manner. The Senior Director continues to lead the start-up initiative, as well as provide overall leadership, vision, and management.
