Welcome to LifeHouse Child Advocacy Center

     Bringing Together People and Resources to Protect the Physical and Emotional Well-being of Child Victims.

LifeHouse Child Advocacy Center is a nationally accredited Child Advocacy Center located in Topeka, Kansas. LifeHouse is a community based, not-for-profit agency designed to meet the unique needs of child victims in our community.

Child abuse is a multifaceted community problem. No single agency, individual or discipline has all the knowledge, skills or resources to serve the needs of child victims and their family members. LifeHouse implemented a team of professionals (the Safe Talk Team) that brings together those agencies with the most expertise in the arena of child sexual and physical abuse.

The Safe Talk Team works together to conduct joint forensic interviews and make team decisions about the investigation, treatment,management and prosecution of child abuse cases. These disciplines include law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical and victim advocacy. LifeHouse believes that the combined wisdom and professional knowledge of those from different disciplines results in a more complete understanding of case issues and the most effective, child and family-focused response.

For child victims and witnesses of abuse, knowing there are sensitive and responsive adults who will help can make all the difference in the world. These littlest victims of crime, and their non-offending family members, face an emotional challenge in telling their story and seeking help. LifeHouse represents a child-friendly, safe place where these children can be heard and understood and the healing process can begin.

Above all, LifeHouse Child Advocacy Center is focused on helping kids be kids again.
