What's New at First Light?
When First Light was only a vision, was it possible that anyone involved in the planning of The Child Advocacy Center could have ever imagined that so many children would pass through these doors, or that so many children would be so in need of the services offered in The safety of First Light? These are the questions that each of us ask daily.
First Light began interviewing children at the CAC
on February 16, 2004. To date hundreds of children
have been provided a safe place in which to tell
their story of abuse.
