Over The Rainbow Children’s Advocacy Center Relocates

On May 2nd, the Over The Rainbow Children’s Advocacy Center celebrated their relocation to a new location at 40 North Second Street, Chambersburg, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The event was attended by members of the community and organizations, including the Cumberland Valley Business Alliance (CVBA), who came together to welcome them to 40 N. Second Street.

Over The Rainbow is a child-centered organization that provides essential services and support to suspected child abuse victims and their families. The center is a neutral agency that works closely with a Multidisciplinary Investigative Team (MDIT) to provide a collaborative approach in the evaluation, investigation, treatment, and intervention related to child victims. The MDIT includes Forensic Interviewers, Medical Providers, Mental Health Providers, Family Advocates, Law Enforcement, Children and Youth Services, and the District Attorney’s Office, each of whom plays a specific role within the framework of the collaborative approach.

Over 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday, making the work of Over The Rainbow crucial in reducing the trauma that children may experience during child abuse investigations. Over The Rainbow provides a secure and welcoming environment for children and their families to receive support and services to heal from child abuse and restore hope.

The CVBA expressed their gratitude for Over The Rainbow’s essential services and congratulates them on their relocation to a new facility.

I have been what I like to call a television aficionado for many, many decades. I enjoy a good evening spent in front of the old boob tube and have since I was young.
