Bucks CAC receives $10K grant from Foundations Community Partnership

Bucks County Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) will be able to incorporate the highly regarded EFI (extended forensic interviewing) model at all three of its Bucks offices to further protect children who may be victims of abuse, thanks to a $10,000 grant from Foundations Community Partnership (FCP).

FCP’s support enables Bucks CAC, whose operations are overseen by nonprofit Network of Victim Assistance, to enhance its services to provide EFI for very young children, children with physical, developmental or cognitive disabilities, and children who may have severe or multiple traumatic events.

“Across the country, research and experience have shown that children are often reluctant and resistant to disclose abuse due to the complex dynamics and stigma of child abuse,” says Leslie Slingsby, LSW, director of the CAC. “While it is challenging to keep children physically safe when they are reluctant to disclose abuse, it can be even more challenging to keep them mentally safe during the disclosure process. The EFI process helps us do that.”
