Edmondson-Telford Center for Children


"The ETCC has been and will continue to be an invaluable resource in the evaluation and effective prosecution of child molestation and abuse cases, all for the protection of our children. It is difficult to imagine returning to a time before the Center’s inception. We are blessed in our community to have such a facility and the expertise connected with it in dealing with these most important issues."
