The Childhelp Children’s Center of Arizona (CCCA), located in Phoenix, is the premier “one stop” advocacy center in the state that provides comprehensive, coordinated investigational resources, medical treatment, mental health therapy and victim support services to child victims of abuse. Operating under the auspices of the CCCA, the Mobile Advocacy Center of Northern Arizona was established in 2003 in partnership with the Safe Child Center at the Flagstaff Medical Center and local law enforcement. The mobile center, a specially outfitted motor home, serves victims and their families at multiple sites in Apache, Coconino and Navajo counties. The Mobile Unit provides professional services and state-of-the art telemedicine technology for the forensic interview and medical examination of abused/neglected children up to the age of 18 years old. The multidisciplinary team (MDT) takes “help” on the road in response to a disclosure of abuse. Additional services include crisis intervention to victims and non-offending family members, victim’s compensation assistance, educational literature on child abuse and substance abuse, and local resource referral information including counseling, legal aid, healthy parenting, substance abuse cessation, shelter services, orders of protection, and emergency assistance. Program goals include reducing victim trauma, providing crisis intervention for the victim and their family, and promoting a more successful conviction rate through community partnerships with CPS, the FBI, local law enforcement and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Victims are directly scheduled through Safe Child Center by calling 1-800-232-1018 and are referred by Child Protective Services, the FBI, local Police Departments, or BIA.

DNA, an acronym for Diné Be’iiná Náhiilna Be Agha’diit’ahii, in Navajo means “attorneys who work for the revitalization of the people”. Annually DNA assists nearly 4,000 individuals by helping them secure and sustain basic needs - safe housing, protection from violence, employment, healthcare and public benefits. We provide free civil legal aid to qualifying residents in portions of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico, including the Navajo Nation, Coconino County, Arizona, and tribal members of the Kaibab Paiute, San Juan Southern Paiute, Hopi, Havasupai and Hualapai tribes.
DNA assists victims of domestic violence to understand and participate in the justice system, to stabilize their lives, secure economic support for themselves and their children and to escape further abuse. Victims can seek assistance at six Arizona offices, or be referred by other agencies, courts or law enforcement. Our services include: advice or brief service (such as help with petitions for Orders of Protection or other court documents, assistance seeking victim compensation, sending letters, placing phone calls); referrals to other agencies; safety planning; assistance during Protection Order proceedings or hearings for custody of abused children; and/or preparing their court pleadings, preparing victims for court hearings, and attending hearings with victims. We provide a broad range of services, but in some instances ethical constraints prevent DNA from providing services to victims, most often when there may be a professional conflict of interest.
