Review for Ralston House, Arvada, CO, USA
Ralston House is an organization that is dedicated to helping children and teenagers who may have either been a victim or witness to a crime. The dedicated staff and volunteers set an atmosphere that is comfortable for the families during a difficult time. It is the goal of the staff to keep the best interest of the children in mind so they are not traumatized as they go through the process of telling their story to a trained forensic interviewer. You would think this would be so incredibly difficult for these children and teenagers, but when when in a comfortable setting, being asked questions in a way that allows for the child to tell their story at their pace, these kids do really well. Most of the time, they express how relieved they were to tell their story. They don't want to leave and ask when they get to come back!
