Medical Advocacy Services

“Does that mean no ones going to be mean to you anymore Mommy?” “Yeah baby, that’s right”- A CCN client and her son having a conversation right after escaping her abuser with our help.

CCN’s medical advocacy program trains and assists medical systems and others in identifying victims and providing them with life saving care and resources. The program creates screening tools, training resources, and distributes tangible health care items to people in need. The CCN medical advocate is also trained to respond on site to CCN partner hospitals when needed to help meet the needs of victims.
