The Western Slope Center for Children

A Child Advocacy Center

We are a Child Advocacy Center, providing services to child sexual abuse victims and their families in a supportive environment that reduces trauma and promotes dignity, justice, and healing.
Compassion . . . Integrity . . . Mutual Respect

In Mesa County, more than 300 children are subjected to sexual or physical abuse each year. Our services combine law enforcement, health professionals, counselors, and provide long-term help to children and their families. This unique combination ensures that victims are not further traumatized by a system and its myriad of regulations that are meant to protect them and prosecute offenders. Our service providers come to the child, rather than the child being referred from agency to agency, a process that results in many children and their families giving up, and slipping through the regulatory cracks.
