The Children's Advocacy Center of Bristol County works with children and families impacted by the trauma of abuse and violence. The non-profit agency was founded in 2007 and is based in Fall River. It provides a coordinated response throughout Bristol County to disclosures and allegations of child sexual abuse, severe physical abuse, and witnesses to violence. Among its partners is the Mass. Department of Children and Families, and the Bristol County District Attorney's Office. Executive Director Michelle Loranger visits Townsquare Sunday this week to discuss the important work her agency does, and what to do if you think a child is being abused.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
