It takes extraordinary courage for sexually abused children to reach out for help. They merit extraordinary support. Stuart House is an internationally recognized, model program created by the Rape Treatment Center at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center to serve the special needs of sexually abused children. In a child-friendly setting, Stuart House brings together a multiagency team (police, prosecutors, and other child protection personnel) to expedite investigations and child protection actions. Stuart House also provides 24-hour emergency medical care, state-of-the-art forensic services, comprehensive therapy, advocacy and other support services that help children heal from the traumatic effects of sexual abuse. All of these services are free to child victims and their families.
