  Accountability & Transparency 100.00 four stars
This rating was published 03/01/2020 and includes data from FY2018, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Bivona Child Advocacy Center is a safe, welcoming place where children who have been sexually or physically abused can begin their journey of healing. The statistics on sexual abuse are startling. About one in 10 children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. Our 22 professional partner agencies are co-located under one roof to surround children with support and protection.

Children who come to Bivona's child-friendly setting receive a forensic interview, a medical evaluation, meet with a victim advocate, and connect with a therapist all in one place so they do not have to repeat their traumatic stories of abuse over and over again.

Since Bivona opened its doors in 2004, nearly 17,000 children have been evaluated.
