BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA
The National Children’s Alliance recently awarded a $25,000 Mental Health Program Improvement Grant for Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and a $46,000 Domestic Trafficking Victims Funds Training Grant to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Brevard. The Domestic Trafficking Victim Funds Training Grant will help them facilitate training to the CACB’s multidisciplinary team members who are involved in child sexual exploitation/child pornography and human trafficking investigations and treatment for victims.
“We’re grateful for both of these grants,” said Jeanie Raciti, Director of the Rockledge-based CACB.
“The funds will provide valuable training to our staff, who are dedicated to serving the most vulnerable individuals in the Space Coast Community. The training will strengthen not only staff members’ individual skills but also those of our MDT partners, enhancing our coordination and collaboration in handling child abuse investigations and improving outcomes for child victims.”
Grant funds also will enable the CACB to invite national experts to Brevard County to present at its third annual Multidisciplinary Team Training Workshop in July at the Space Coast Health Foundation Center for Collaboration.
