Monarch Children's Justice & Advocacy Center is a collaborative effort of the Thurston County Prosecuting Attorney's Office, Providence St. Peter Hospital Sexual Assault Clinic, DSHS/Division of Children's Services, additional community agencies, local law enforcement agencies and private therapists. Child Advocacy Centers work to reduce the incidence and impact of child abuse by providing a coordinated, multidisciplinary response to victims of child abuse and their families. This response includes prevention, investigation, prosecution, and treatment and includes community partners who are experts in those areas. Monarch multidisciplinary team is changing the way the community responds to child victims of sexual abuse. This multidisciplinary approach offers child victims and their families a place where they can access the help they need to heal emotionally and physically from abuse.
