by Martha Smith

Jackson County is now the home of the Jackson County Child Advocacy Center.

For several years Dr. Jessica Howell, forensic interviewer and therapist, has seen children in need at Jackson County DHR. Howell traveled from the DeKalb County Child Advocacy Center to meet the needs of those in Jackson County who have became victims of Domestic Violence, physical abuse, sexual abuse or drug abuse.
Children can receive a span of services through the Child Advocacy Center including Forensic Interviews in a child friendly environment and  therapy for several different issues. The center also hosts a Family Advocate program that will provide support to non offending family members and caregivers of child abuse victims. A Parent Education Course is also offered with  support and helpful information for parents of newborn babies, toddlers, adolescents and teens.  “We also have a class to help shift to a co-parent relationship caused by divorce,” Howell said.
  The effort to create a Jackson County Child Advocacy Center has been well underway for a while. The family of Tom Perkins has recently donated the use of a building, which previously housed Tom Perkins Accounting. Perkins has offered the building to this cause rent free for one year. This allows the Jackson County Child Advocacy Center Board time to work on and receive grants, fundraisers and other financial assistance needed to run the Center. J-38 recently donated their time to clean up and paint the building. Last year alone Howell saw approximately 50 children in Jackson County. This number only include those who are referred by DHR or are court ordered.
According to Howell, volunteers and donations are needed. Child Advocacy Centers run off of the community support and grants. To make a donation, checks can be mailed to P.O. Box 902, Scottsboro, Alabama 35768. To volunteer please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
