Child abuse does not define who a child is or who they will become. At the Dee Norton Child Advocacy Center, children and families have a safe, child-friendly place to turn when there is a concern about abuse.
Primary services include providing immediate support and assistance to children and their families through forensic interviews, medical examinations and mental health assessments. Dee Norton also provides therapy to child victims and their families where appropriate. Dee Norton is a community-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and coordinates with more than 30 partner agencies in the Charleston community to take appropriate action and deliver the critical services needed for the child and family. We also strive to increase public awareness of the issue of child abuse. Dee Norton is a Charter Member of the National Children’s Alliance, the national accreditation body for Children’s Advocacy Centers (CAC) and an Affiliate Program of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.
Since 1991, Dee Norton has helped over 29,000 children and their families.
