After over 20 years of working with children who have been the victim of sexual abuse, the Philadelphia Children’s Alliance is getting a central location which it will share with representatives of the District Attorney’s Office, the Police Department Special Victims Unit (SVU), the Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Sexual Abuse Investigations Unit.

“This co-location facility is critical to coordinating crime-response strategies across the City of Philadelphia,” said Mayor Nutter at the facilities ground breaking last year.  “Bringing together these different agencies that share the same goal, to support and protect the victims of sexual abuse, will further enhance the efficiency of investigations and the efficacy of services provided to victims.”

The “co-location” is designed to make coordination between these agencies more efficient and, most importantly, less jarring for the victims that these organizations are trying to serve.

The facility is located on E. Hunting Park and includes interview rooms, expanded hours and on-site medical exams and psychological services

On Monday, August 26 at 11:00am, the facility will officially open with a ribbon cutting by Mayor Nutter.
