The Philadelphia Children’s Alliance (PCA) works tirelessly to ensure that every sexually abused child in Philadelphia receives the care they need to heal. Victims of child sexual abuse have already been through so much, and the pain and shame that accompany this abuse can be overwhelming. Years ago, abused children would have to recount their trauma over and over again… to police officers, district attorneys, social workers, and more. That is no longer the case in Philadelphia, thanks to PCA.
During the last year, we responded to 2,864 reports of child sexual abuse with compassion and expertise. As part of these responses, we conducted 1,688 forensic interviews, supplied various support services to 1,791 caregivers, provided on-site counseling to 156 children, referred 1,230 children for counseling off-site, and performed 517 on-site medical exams.
As the only Child Advocacy Center in Philly, we meet an incredible need in our city.
