Meet Our Staff: Team Members

Executive Director

Sarah Anderson

Our Executive Director, Sarah, carries out the purposes, policies, and programs of the Franklin-Williamson Child Advocacy Center by establishing and promoting a facility that has a home like atmosphere in which cases of child sexual abuse and other child abuse may be handled in the least traumatic environment. Our Executive Director directs activities of the employees of the FWCAC and carries the majority of the responsibilities for fund raising efforts, and public relations work in collaboration with the Board Committee members.

Child Advocates

Our Child Advocates, Pam and Elaina, provide case management and advocacy services for children who have been a victim of sexual and/or physical abuse or children who have witnessed a traumatic and violent crime.  They also provide support services to non-offending family members. The advocate is responsible for promoting a child focused, trauma informed, and supportive environment by providing crisis support, system information, and community resources.  The Child Advocate promotes the best interests of the child during all phases of the investigation, prosecution, and treatment services.
