The Dr. Bill Lewis Center for Children is a nonprofit, NCA Accredited Member Center whose mission is to provide neutral, child-friendly forensic interviews and interagency, comprehensive assessments of reported child sexual abuse victims.
We are located in Fort Wayne, Indiana and serve eight counties in northeast Indiana: Allen, Adams, DeKalb, Huntington, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wells and Whitley County.
The Dr. Bill Lewis Center for Children is named after the late Dr. Bill Lewis, a long-time Fort Wayne neonatologist, whose life was dedicated to the care of and advocacy for children. The Dr. Bill Lewis Center for Children serves as the voice of justice for children whose trauma has often engulfed them in silencing fear.
