Funding for the C.A.R.E. Center equipment and furniture is provided by grants, donations and the Supplemental Law Enforcement Services Fund (SLESF). No general funds are being utilized in the funding of this project. In addition, there will be no incurred costs for any of the non-profit and social services agencies slated to utilize the facility. The VPD is actively seeking and will continue making ourselves available to additional grant opportunities.
“I am truly grateful and proud of the commitment, passion and collaborative effort our partners and staff have put into this process to deliver needed services to our children and victims of sexual assault and heinous abuse. Our community deserves and needs this exceptional level of trauma-informed care services, and we look forward to making a real difference.”
We would like to sincerely thank Napa Solano SANE-SART Executive, National Alliance on Mental Illness (Solano County) and Solano County Victim Witness Advocates for their advocacy work and support in this endeavor. Funding derives from the existing police fiscal budget previously approved for the purpose of victim advocacy.
The Vallejo PD will keep the community apprised of when the center officially opens to provide trauma-informed care services to victims in need. For more information on Child Advocacy Centers and how they operate, please visit, nationalchildrensalliance.org.
