The Ralston House (formerly known as the Arvada Child Advocacy Center) provides a multi-disciplinary, team approach to children who have been involved as a witness or victim of crime.
This multi-disciplinary approach allows the child to have access to the police detective, a medical examination, and a victim advocate, among other services, all in one location.
It minimizes further trauma to a child from the impact of a crime and from involvement in the criminal justice process.
Each year, fundraisers are held to help support this wonderful facility that serves children. Be sure and check Arvada's events in order to participate.
