Susie’s Place Child Advocacy Center has been on the mind and in the hearts of many for more than a decade and is committed to strengthening the community’s ability to nurture and protect children and respond to child abuse in Indiana. In 2005, Emily E. Perry joined the Indianapolis Institute for Families as a Clinical Associate and Director of Special Programs. At that time, the Indianapolis Institute for Families had provided the Child Abuse Treatment Program to Hendricks County for over 20 years. Shortly after joining the Institute’s team, Emily identified an opportunity within Hendricks County that had the potential to systematically improve the county’s ability to investigate allegations of child abuse while maintaining the child as the first priority. Hendricks county needed a Child Advocacy Center.
