DUNBAR, W.Va. (AP) - Officials have unveiled a program aimed at providing quick assistance to West Virginia children traumatized by violence at home, school or in their communities.

Officials from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, State Police and other agencies on Tuesday announced the establishment of the West Virginia Center for Children’s Justice in Dunbar.

The center will promote safe and supportive homes, schools and communities that protect children and help those who are traumatized.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says the center will be a coordinated effort of information, resources, training and assistance among law enforcement, prosecutors, schools and mental health providers.

Goodwin says the goal is to work together to make improvements that can positively change a child’s life.
