Collaborative Services

Mission Kids provides a center for team investigation of child abuse cases.

Forensic interviews are conducted in a manner that is legally sound, neutral, fact-finding, and coordinated to avoid repeated interviews and trauma to the child.

Representatives of the DA’s Office, law enforcement and social services work together as a multidisciplinary team and observe, but do not participate in the interview as it takes place, thereby reducing the number of interviews a child victim must undergo.

This team approach supports and protects children throughout the legal process, preserving their physical and emotional well-being.
