Bivona Child Advocacy Center’s professional partner agencies are co-located under one roof to surround your child with support and protection. Our caring, streamlined approach minimizes trauma to children, preserves the best evidence for investigators, and saves the community about $1 million a year. 

Children who come to Bivona receive an interview, a medical examination, meet with a victim advocate and connect with a therapist, all under one roof, in a warm, child-friendly environment.
