In Mesa County, more than 300 children are subjected to sexual or physical abuse each year. The Western Slope Center for Children (the Center) is an accredited child advocacy center dedicated to reducing the trauma of abuse and neglect for children and their non-offending family members and caregivers. The Center provides a neutral, child and family friendly facility and assists in the coordination and facilitation of the multiple professional agencies that are involved in the complexities of child sexual abuse cases, physical abuse cases, and witnesses to violence. The Center also provides direct, supportive services to child victims and their non-offending family members.
