First Witness Child Abuse Resource Center
First Witness Child Abuse Resource Center is a safe, child-friendly place for victims of child sexual and physical abuse to tell their story. The mission of First Witness Child Abuse Resource Center is to strengthen our community’s response to child abuse, making our community a safe place for kids to grow and thrive. We provide child appropriate forensic interviews, crisis counseling to children and families and age appropriate education on personal body safety for children. Families in crisis come to First Witness to begin healing and learn trauma coping skills. We also provide forensic interview training to social workers, law enforcement officials, county attorneys and others who work with children or investigate child abuse allegations. At First Witness we believe every child deserves ongoing safety and opportunities to heal from abuse.
First Witness is a nationally accredited child advocacy center working as part of a multidisciplinary team made up of public and private agencies involved with the investigation, prosecution, medical examination and advocacy services for children and their non-offending caregivers. Prior to First Witness, children were likely to be interviewed 3-4 times throughout the investigation. Those involved with the process saw the need for change. Our team protocol requires just one recorded, child-centered interview at the First Witness building in Duluth. Our goal is to make sure children are safe.
