The Jamestown-based Lake Cumberland Children’s Advocacy Center recently opened a satellite location in nearby Nancy in neighboring Pulaski County to help provide services to children in that area who need assistance.
According to a report in the Somerset Commonwealth Journal, a ribbon cutting was held at the Pulaski location this past Friday.
There are 15 Children’s Advocacy Centers in the Kentucky, and they are designed to help children who have suffered some sort of abuse or traumatic experience. These centers match children with case workers and mental healthcare providers who are sensitive to the needs of vulnerable children as well as people in the legal system who can bring children’s abusers to justice.
Kristin Jacobson is the director of the new Pulaski location.
Pulaski County makes up about a third of the referrals which the advocacy center receives in the 10-county Lake Cumberland district.
