Ashley's Place (Sumner Child Advocacy Center) was established in Sumner County to provide therapy, support services and victim advocacy to children and families who are victims of child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse.  The mission is to ensure that a cooperative, multi-disciplinary team delivers comprehensive services to child physical and sexual abuse victims and their families in a child friendly and neutral based facility. This grant will provide healing to child abuse victims and their families through the expansion of their therapy program.  An additional 50 child victims in need of therapy will be assisted in becoming mentally and emotionally healthy adolescents and adults through individual therapy. In addition, this program assists family and caregivers by providing education and support in dealing with child sexual abuse and the family's role in a healthy recovery through the Non-Offending Family Member Support Group.
