The Carousel Center is the region’s only nationally accredited, nonprofit Child Advocacy Center that provides child medical exams, forensic interviews, confidential professional trauma counseling, and caregiver support to children and their families who have experienced physical/sexual abuse.
Last month, it signed a memo of understanding to be the sole provider of child abuse services for Pender County.
“We are currently selecting an office space in Burgaw to open in three to six months to more efficiently serve Pender children and their families closer to home,” says AMY FEATH, The Carousel Center’s executive director.
