Children Advocacy Centers (Barnahus) of the Empowering Children Foundation

Children who experienced violence and sexual abuse and their carers receive in Centers a wide range of assistance - psychological, psychiatric, legal, medical, social, end educational. Centers are based on a multidirectional model of helping abused children to prevent their secondary traumatization. Children who tell their difficult stories only once and have contact with a selected group of specialists receive more effective help and reestablish bonds more easily. In every Center there is created a child-friendly interrogation room. Centers cooperate with courts, prosecutor offices, police, social welfare centers, health care and educational facilities.

Center in Warsaw offers not only direct support but there is also based the helpline for children 116 111.
