Offering a Helping Hand Every Step of the Way
SungateKids has been providing forensic interviewing and child and family advocacy services for more than 25 years. Our expert interviewers are highly trained, and together have more than 30 years of experience interviewing child victims of abuse. We work together in a multidisciplinary team approach with Law Enforcement, Child Protective Services, the District Attorney’s Office, and medical and mental health professionals to achieve the best outcomes for the children and families we serve.
In addition to our forensic interviewing services, SungateKids offers a full-service Therapeutic Support Program. This program provides both individual counseling and therapeutic support groups for child abuse victims ages 4–18 and their non-offending family members and caregivers.
Therapy and support can have a life-changing impact. Here is what participants are saying about our therapeutic services:
“So many people want to help and offer help - but the Support Group is different because people don't just offer help. They actually do help.”12 year old Girl
“Know that you are not alone. Being in the Group with other people who went through the same thing as me made me feel like I could get through anything.”16 year old girl
“Step one - breathe. This is a safe place and these are safe people. They will catch you when you fall, because they caught me. The beginning was bittersweet, because I was reluctant to get help. But in the end, it's all sweetness, because everyone became my friends and greatest teachers and healers.”Participant in Parent Support Group
