The Columbia County Child Abuse Assessment Center (Amani Center) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization created to assist our community in responding to child abuse.
To provide forensic child abuse evaluations and support for children and their families who may have been impacted by abuse or neglect.
The primary goal of the Center is to ensure that children (birth to 18 years of age) suspected to be victims
of sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, and/or domestic violence are provided
with quality evaluative, and support services in a child-friendly setting.
