Forensic Interviews

To protect children we must fight together

The Dr. Bill Lewis Center for Children's mission is to provive forensic interviews for children who are alleged victims of sexual abuse.  Founded in 2000, the Child Advocacy Center was renamed the Dr. Bill Lewis Center for Children in 2010 in honor of the late Dr. Bill Lewis, a founding member of the agency and the region’s first neonatologist and child advocate. The Lewis Center, one of only four nationally accredited child advocacy centers in Indiana, was a result of community collaboration and a desire to restructure the forensic interview process conducted for alleged victims of sexual abuse. Located in Fort Wayne and serving nine northeast Indiana counties, the mission of the Center is to provide neutral, child-friendly, forensic interviews and inter-agency comprehensive assessments of reported child sexual abuse victims. The multidisciplinary team approach utilized by the Lewis Center makes the agency a unique provider of a specialized service – a service provided at no charge to the community. From 2010 to 2013, the agency grew from providing 558 interviews to 755 interviews. To ensure the provision of quality interviews and service, the Lewis Center achieved re-accreditation from the National Children’s Alliance in 2014.
