Kids Talk is a child-focused location where children can report abuse in a safe and comforting environment. Kids Talk provides protection and justice through a multi-disciplinary approach, including law enforcement, Department of Child Services, the Madison County Prosecutor’s Office, mental health, healthcare, and trained advocates.  Kids Talk is based on the child advocacy center model. At its core, the model is about teamwork — bringing agency professionals involved in a case together on the front end. 

Goals of Kids Talk

Kids Talks puts the needs of the child first by establishing the following:

  • Providing a safe and welcoming place for children to be heard
  • Bringing the system to the child, by providing a single location for interviewing children rather than having a child taken from agency to agency throughout the investigation and potentially enduring multiple interviews
  • Utilizing a certified, forensic interviewer who can meet the informational needs of all investigative professionals involved while remaining child-focused
  • Facilitating a collaborative approach among agency investigative professionals that results in effective, efficient and child-centered casework
  • Ensuring that parents or caregivers of the children are guided towards programs that will facilitate the healing process for the child and family
