The Centers for Disease Control estimates that one in five children will be sexually assaulted before age 18. The Washington County Children’s Justice Center serves children who are victims of these and other crimes. Our mission is to collaborate with multidisciplinary partners to protect each child, advance justice, promote healing, and educate our community. In 2019 we served more than 500 children and their non-offending family members, providing forensic interviews, medical services, victim advocacy, and mental health therapy.
