Collaborative Services

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

When an allegation of child abuse is made in Montgomery County, Mission Kids’ Case Coordinators work closely with detectives, prosecutors, child protection caseworkers, and forensic interviewers to facilitate a multidisciplinary response and ensure that victims receive the help they need.

A primary goal of the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) approach to the investigation of child abuse is the avoidance of multiple, duplicative interviews of a child, which could hinder an investigation and further traumatize a child after experiencing abuse. The multi-disciplinary team approach improves prosecution outcomes and ensures that the well-being of the child is of the utmost importance.
