With one refreshing day off – from her Nov. 13 end date at the Index – she started working for the CACPPC on Nov. 15.
“The board has come a long way with the center and the facility, but there is so much work ahead to prepare the center for a March opening,” she said.
“When it opens, the initial role of the center will be facilitating a multidisciplinary team, which includes law enforcement, Children’s Protective Services staff and the Palo Pinto County District Attorney’s staff,” added Cluett. “This team will undergo training in late January and will work together, conducting forensic interviews with child victims and case reviews at the center, as well as aiding victims and their families.”
The Children’s Alliance Center for Palo Pinto County is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which is dedicated to “uniting collective efforts to prevent child abuse, reduce trauma of abuse and protect our children, while restoring the families of our community,” according to its mission.
