Stop the hurt. Begin the healing.  



Tulsa County's child-friendly advocacy center delivers a highly effective model for child abuse investigation.

The Child Abuse Network (CAN) exists to reduce the trauma that a child abuse investigation can pose for the child. Before our program came into being, children frequently endured stressful examinations and numerous interviews by various agencies, often in cold, sterile facilities.

Today CAN delivers a highly effective alternative, bringing multiple agencies together in a single, safe and comforting environment for children in crisis. CAN enables medical, mental health, investigative and legal professionals to work together under one roof, to provide less traumatic investigation and to determine whether child abuse has occurred.

For an abused child, adjusting to life after abuse is difficult.

CAN helps begin the healing.
