How We Help
The Treehouse coordinates a multi-disciplinary team (MDT) approach in response to allegations of child abuse. Our staff facilitates a comprehensive, coordinated approach that not only results in a more successful investigation and prosecution outcome, but also provides a better, less traumatic response for child victims and their families. The MDT is coordinated by The Treehouse and consists of forensic interviewers, forensic medical examiners (SANE Nurses), advocates, law enforcement, child protection workers, prosecutors, mental health providers, school social workers, behavioral health workers, juvenile justice officers, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and community supervision officers. These professionals communicate and work together to reduce additional trauma on the child and family.
