Technology Upgrades to Remotely Serve Children

Mary Abbott Children’s House

Award Date: May 1, 2020
Awarded: $8,000

Mary Abbott Children’s House is a safe place for children to share their experiences regarding sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect, as well as children who are a witness to crime and in drug endangered situations. Abbott House provides services to children ages 3 to 18 years old from District 21 (Cleveland, McClain and Garvin counties), as well as surrounding areas. Upgraded technology equipment will allow for investigative partner agencies and Abbott House staff to watch interviews live while off-site, limiting the number of people in the building while continuing to serve vulnerable children and families in the community.
