Quinton’s House in Clinton County is a satellite location of Tippecanoe County-based Heartford House.
Heartford House is designed with alleged victims and families in mind. Our goal is to help reduce the secondary stress that can be associated with an interview. Our building and staff create a feeling of security, safety and privacy. Heartford House’s process for talking with children utilizes a method that helps minimize additional trauma that victims experience when asked to repeat details of a crime.
Before the interview, the child is introduced to one, specially trained interviewer who shows the victim to a child-friendly room, where the interview takes place. This room is fitted with special equipment that allows a multidisciplinary team to watch the interview and speak directly to the interviewer from another room. This technique provides a more comfortable experience for the child being interviewed
