In the last 5 years, the Carousel Center has seen more an average of 450 children a year between the ages of birth and 17 from New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender counties.
Most of these children have been referred to us by local law enforcement, or the County’s Department of Social Services.
Since our doors opened in January of 2000 we have provided Certified Medical Exams (CMEs) to 4,756 children, facilitated 9,510 child trauma therapy sessions.
We have seen a 48% REDUCTION in trauma symptoms from children who have done therapy with us.
In July, of 2019 we opened our 2nd office in Supply, NC to better serve the children, caregivers and our partners in Brunswick County closer to home.
TCC is part of the national Child Advocacy Center network (37 non-profit agencies in North Carolina) dedicated to two primary concerns:
- Providing high-quality child medical exams and forensic interviews of children, 0-17 years, who are reported to have experienced child sexual/physical abuse and/or neglect.
- Provide evidence-based Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), regardless of a family’s insurance coverage status or their ability to pay out-of-pocket for therapy services.
