Office Manager (Former Employee) –  Covington, LADecember 30, 2017
The Children's Advocacy Center is a nonprofit organization working with Forensic Interviewers to substantiate cases of victims of child abuse. As Office Manager, I provided fundamental support to the staff and worked closely with law enforcement, social services and the District Attorney's office. The hardest part of the job was learning of the horrific abuse these children suffered. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that we were helping in the healing process for the victims and building the cases against the perpetrators so that they would be prosecuted.
Pros
Professional work environment
Cons
Difficult to learn about child abuse cases

The Children's Advocacy Center was a great organization that had a heartfelt purpose of helping children in need who had been mentally, physically, and sexually abused. Sadly the organization is no longer in existence due to financial hardships.

The job is very joyful
Intern (Former Employee) –  Pine Bluff, ARJuly 20, 2017
A typical day at the center would be greeting all parents and children as they walk through the door in the morning. The hardest part of the job is making sure that you are doing everything each parent has asked you to do for their child. The easy part of the job is developing a relationship with each child and there parents. I've learned that children can get attached to those who really care about them.

Part time job, taught parents how to become better parents, social skills and log information on their charts for court review. Management was awesome, loved working here.

Provides quality services to children who have experienced abuse
Internship (Former Employee) –  Bristol, VAAugust 20, 2013
The CAC is an excellent work place. The staff work together as a team with a clear focus on the mission of the organization. The CAC provides forensic interviews, case management, and counseling to children who have experienced abuse and their non-offending caregiver. The CAC also provides abuse prevention and community awareness services. The management does an excellent job of setting a supportive work environment and of keeping the agency's focus on its mission. As an MSW student my primary role was providing individual and group counseling to children who had experienced abuse. Counseling techniques included play therapy, TF-CBT, and solution-focused therapy. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping victims of abuse to find healing. The hardest part of the job was leaving it when my internship ended.
Pros
great team of staff who support one another
Cons
there were no available paid positions
