Our Center

The Shining Star Children's Advocacy Center was established in 2002.  The Center provides a comfortable environment, full of childhood comforts, where they can tell a trusting adult the unimaginable.  The Center which is located in the Commerce Towers Building is the first stop before entering the justice system.  In the Center the children will meet a team of caring individuals that focus on making the child feel safe again and environment that is kid friendly.  Shown below are some pictures from the Shining Star Children's Advocacy Center.  Click on the image to expand.
