A group that advocates for victims of child abuse in Oklahoma County has been reaccredited.

The C.A.R.E. Center received a positive review from the National Children's Alliance after an extensive application and site review process, said Te'ata Purcell, program director.

The center was judged based on its collaboration in the investigation, prosecution and treatment of child abuse, and its standards of cultural competency and diversity, forensic interviews, victim support and advocacy, medical evaluation, mental health services and child-focused setting.

C.A.R.E. and other advocacy centers must undergo reaccreditation every five years to maintain alliance membership, Purcell said. The group assists more than 1,200 Oklahoma County child abuse victims and their families each year.
