Utah County Children's Justice Center
Laura Blanchard, Director
The Children's Justice Center is a homelike facility which serves children and families who are experiencing the crisis and chaos that comes with the disclosure of significant physical or sexual abuse of a child.
The Center is designed to help children feel safe and comfortable so that they may begin to deal with the difficult and often frightening issues that surround abuse. The focus and function of the Children's Justice Center is to reduce the trauma of the child abuse investigation and help the child feel safe to reveal the truth.
The CJC is a working public/private partnership for our children. The homelike facility and the treatment programs of the CJC are supported by private donations from the community. The CJC receives partial operational funding through appropriation by the Utah State Legislature, administered by the Office of the Utah Attorney General. Funding for mental health treatment is also available through private donations and special grants of the CDBG monies from the cities of Orem and Provo.
