Northeastern Pennsylvania Healthcare Foundation recently awarded The Children’s Advocacy Center of Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties a $10,000 grant to help fund the continuation of services that reduce the trauma experienced by children who have been physically or sexually abused in Wyoming County.

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties is a private, non-profit, charitable organization overseen by Family Service Association of Northeastern Pennsylvania (FSA NEPA) and a committee of community members. FSA NEPA opened the Children’s Center in October, 2015 and provides a safe, comfortable environment for children and their families as they go through the interviewing and examination process after disclosing some type of traumatic experience. Since opening in the fall of 2015, 120 children have been provided forensic interviews at the center and 63 of those children received medical exams for physical and sexual abuse. To learn more about the Children’s Center and how you can be involved, please contact Janine Fortney at 570-823-5144, ext. 370 or Jfortney@fsanepa.org.

About Author

Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
