Seneca Nation & CACs

The Seneca Nation and the leaders of three WNY child advocacy centers, including our STCAC, signed an historic memorandum of understanding Tuesday which guarantees that all Seneca Nation of Indians families will benefit from child advocacy center services if needed. The agreement is between the Seneca Nation of Indians, the Lee Gross Anthone Child Advocacy Center in Buffalo, our Southern Tier Child Advocacy Center and the Chautauqua Child Advocacy Program of Jamestown. All the agencies will work together to help child abuse victims and their families. I want to thank the Seneca Nation of Indians and, in particular, Tim Waterman, CEO of Seneca Nation Health Services, for ensuring CAC services will be available to all Seneca Nation families.

Paramedic Mandated Reporter Training

Karen Hill, Director of our Southern Tier Child Advocacy Center, gave a presentation to the 22 students in our Regional Paramedic Program about their roles and responsibilities as mandated reporters. As with teachers, EMS providers are required to report any suspicions of child neglect and/or abuse to the NYS Mandated Reporter Hotline at 1-800-635-1522. We also presented the Less is More training to the class. Less is More is a New York State training which was developed in cooperation with members of our STCAC multidisciplinary team. The training is designed to teach professionals who work with or may encounter children how to respond effectively to allegations or suspicions of child abuse. I’m very happy we are able to provide this expert training to Paramedic Program students.
