Douglas C.A.R.E.S goes to Washington D.C.!


Director Sarah Wickersham traveled to the capital in June to attend the National Children’s Alliance Conference along with hundreds of other Child Advocacy Center Directors, Forensic Interviewers, Detectives, and Child Welfare Caseworkers from across the nation to learn about the amazing support provided by NCA to communities like Douglas County.


Sarah was also able to meet with the offices of Representative Peter DeFazio and Senator Jeff Merkley where she told the story of child abuse in Douglas County. We raised awareness around important issues like information sharing, housing resources, addictions, and the truly innovative way we come together as a community to staff cases of child abuse and step in to help the whole family recover from the traumatic events.
