Safe Shores – The DC Children’s Advocacy Center is committed to being a safe, helpful, and trustworthy resource, available to everyone who needs our services and support. Due to COVID-19, we are operating in a hybrid environment – combining in-person and remote work – and observing federal and local government public health protection guidelines. Masks are required on-site, and COVID-19 screening (questions and temperature check) is conducted upon arrival.
We want Safe Shores’ people and resources to be readily accessible to everyone who needs them. Here are the direct points of contact on our team for forensic interviews, mental health support, client advocacy, MDT matters, child abuse prevention training, fundraising, media, as well as general, non-urgent inquires.
