Here in Stark County, Ohio, we are very fortunate to have the Children’s Network, a place where children of abuse can prepare for trials and work through their trauma. Founded in 1987, the Children’s Network Child Advocacy Center of Stark County (The Network) is a community partnership of caring professionals from child protective services, local law enforcement agencies, prosecution, victim advocacy, mental health, medical and support services. These professionals work together in one location to help children and their families cope with exposure to violence, sexual abuse and severe physical abuse by offering comprehensive, coordinated services in the investigation and prosecution of these cases and the treatment and aftercare services available to these children and their non-offending family members.

And The Network is very fortunate to have Sheba, a therapy dog who helps calm children as they try to put their shattered lives back together. Isn’t she beautiful?

Such a great mission!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
