Ralston House (RH) and the child advocacy model helps bring child sexual abuse to light. When a child tells his or her story, the healing process begins. Our mission is to stop the abuse and start the healing. Remember the children of our community depend on all of us.
"I like this place. It feels like home." - a child expresses what many children say to us. They feel safe here.
From a parent whose child was interviewed at Ralston House: I thought it was a welcoming environment and much better than my daughter being questioned at a police station."
From another parent: "As soon as we walked in we felt the comfort in this home. I don't call it a house because in a house there's no comfort but in a home there is."
