Referrals to the Child Witness to Violence Project come from a variety of sources, including the police, health and mental health providers, Head Start and other early childhood programs, schools, attorneys, domestic violence shelters, court-sponsored victim programs and families themselves. Referral criteria include:
- The child must be 8 years old or younger
- The child must have witnessed an act of significant violence
- If the child’s primary reason for referral does not meet the criteria for our program we will help to refer the child to other programs.
No health insurance necessary. Services are free.
