Almost 34% of kids age 12–17 have been cyberbullied at some point in their life. Cyberbullying includes sending, posting, or sharing negative, harmful, false, or mean content about someone else. It can include sharing personal or private information about someone else causing embarrassment or humiliation. Some cyberbullying crosses the line into unlawful or criminal behavior.

Thank you to NWMS Realtors leadership team for organizing a fun night of food and fellowship at Uncle Bubbas BBQ and Smokehouse. Money was raised from the event that will benefit Tyler’s Closet which is the community closet that Healing Hearts CAC sponsors for children removed from unsafe homes by child protection services. Thank you to all who attended!

A Forensic Interview is a structured conversation between a child and the CAC professionally trained interviewer. Audio and video recordings document evidence in a safe environment that can be used in further proceedings by law enforcement, CPS, or a counselor. The benefit of having a forensic interview is to reduce the stress and pain the child endures having to retell a traumatic experience while producing an objective and legally defensible statement. #NationalChildAbuseAwarenessMonth #ForensicInterview
