A non-profit organization wants parents to know that there is a place they can go if their child is sexually abused.

The organization recently changed its name from, The Children's Advocacy Center, to Safe Passage. Organizers says, they changed the name in hopes that more people will be able to better recognize what they do.

Since 1994, more than 10 thousand children benefited from their services at Safe Passage.

At Safe Passage, parents can bring their child to a safe and comfortable environment where investigators can interview them. There is also a private and professional medical exam room, if necessary. Support groups are also available for the victim and their family. Volunteers at Safe Passage can also walk families through the process of making sure those responsible for the sexual assault, is punished.
