The Center’s mission is to respond to, reduce, and prevent domestic and sexual violence. This mission will be achieved through education, collaboration, and advocacy, with crisis and supportive services to victims and survivors.
The Board of Directors, staff and volunteers of the Children’s Advocacy Center believe child abuse is a community problem.
Past experience has taught us that no single agency can possibly meet all the needs of sexually victimized children and their families. Experience has also taught us that taking child victims from agency to agency over and over for multiple interviews, traumatizes the children and, in fact, revictimizes them. We are committed to providing a coordinated, multidisciplinary team approach including Protective Services, Law Enforcement, Prosecution, Medical and Mental Health professionals. It is our goal to provide programs and support services for child victims and their families which will enable them to heal emotionally and physically.
Our vision is a healthy, engaged, and compassionate community. Our mission is to end poverty and homelessness.

Lasting change happens when we empower people to work their way out of poverty. At Good Samaritan Ministries, we are learners who study the causes of poverty and its effects on individuals, families, and community. We use that knowledge to continually innovate new ways to accomplish our mission of finding solutions to poverty and homelessness.

Abuse happens, even here among us. And children are not the only victims, and not all abuse is sexual. But it doesn't have to be this way, and you don't have to face these issues alone. Safe Church Ministry equips congregations in abuse awareness, prevention and response.
Safe Families for Children is an alternative to foster care. In foster care, children are placed into homes through the courts and foster families receive compensation for their care.
Through SFFC, host families receive no compensation for caring for children, and parents voluntarily have their children stay with them. The goal of the SFFC ministry is to offer support in a time of need and reunite children with their families in a stronger home environment. This temporary care for children in need gives parents time to establish stability in their homes. Parents are actively involved in their children’s lives and will develop a relationship with the host family. Because Safe Families for Children is not foster care, the children are not placed in the care of the State. Bethany staff work with the parents during this transition to identify steps to regain stability and be reunited with their children quickly and safely.
