We’d like you to meet Ben, a CARE House Front Desk Volunteer!

Everything at CARE House, from the architecture of our building to our client intake procedure, was designed with a sensitivity to the needs of children.

It’s important that the kids who come to us, whether it’s for weekly therapy or a forensic interview, feels safe and comfortable as soon as they walk through our door.

The Front Desk Volunteer is an essential part of accomplishing that goal.

Brittany, one of our forensic interviewers, pointed out an article that she thought elucidated some of the mystery behind what it is, precisely, that forensic interviewers do. Written by Elizabeth King, a forensic interviewer at Randolph-Tucker CAC in West Virginia, the article explains how the interviewer has to be an expert improvisor, ensuring a constant balance between the needs of the MDT and the needs of the child, all while maintaining their essential integrity and neutrality.

As an organization with a vested interest in the health and well-being of our community, we’re always on the lookout for opportunities to spread our message to new people. We’re so excited that one such opportunity has developed not far from our facility at Fork n’ Pint in Waterford, where they’ve introduced a charity pint benefiting CARE House! For every pint they sell of Norm’s Raggedy A** IPA by Griffin Claw Brewing Company, Fork n’ Pint will donate $1 to CARE House.
