Groups Join Forces for Abused Kids in Pampa

Two groups which help abused children are teaming up and branching out in Pampa. 

The Bridge Children's Advocacy Center and CASA of the High Plains have opened a new office on N. Ballard Street.

CASA Director James Watts explains that since the two groups offer a lot of the same services to abused children,  they thought combining forces was a logical idea. "It was a lot more cost effective, they needed an on site place in Pampa to do interviews with children who had been in crimes or witnesses to crimes. 

CASA advocates for abused and neglected children in the court system, and the Bridge has created neutral-based facilities for the interviews of and services for abused children.

The new facility does have a brand new interview and monitor room...children across the eastern panhandle will be helped by this new Pampa alliance.
