Dear Friends:


The Washington County Children’s Justice Center is celebrating 15 Years Serving Children and Families in Washington County! The first interview with a suspected child abuse victim was February, 1997.

At that time, we were located in a small home donated by Dixie Regional Medical Center. The local community stepped in and

made the Center a reality by contributing money and furnishings. It was anticipated we would serve

100 to 150 children per year, at most.


As years went by, and an average of 300 children were being interviewed each year it became clear that a larger facility was needed. Again, thanks to the generosity of the County’s citizens, money was raised, supplies and labor were donated and the current facility opened in April, 2008. It stands as tribute to our caring community that no public monies were used to fund the building, and it is mortgage-free!

It is heart-wrenching to see a young child, or a teenager, struggle to find words to describe the pain they have experienced at the hands of an adult or older child. We are grateful, however, that we have a local facility that can provide a safe, comfortable setting where professionals can sit with the child and their family members and obtain needed information and details. The process begins a path of healing for the child and the family.


We ask you to join with us as we celebrate our 15 year anniversary by making a donation that will ensure we will meet our operational and training needs for upcoming years.  All we have accomplished can be traced back to our community members and their consistent and generous support.


Donate now to the Children's Justice Center of Washington County


Thank you for your consideration, and your support of our youngest and most vulnerable citizens. We invite you to stop by the Center and take a tour or pick up resource materials if we can be of service to you.



Patricia Sheffield, M.S.
