Agency that helps Children in Macon County Changes Name and Shows Off New Location

Posted:

Decatur-The Child First Center in Decatur--is the former Macon County Child Advocacy Center. 

The Organization changed its name to better show what its advocates do for children in Macon County.  They work with law enforcement and family services during child abuse and neglect investigations to make sure the child gets what they need. 

An open house on Thursday showed off the new location for the center.  They moved in to the East Clay Street location in November of 2015.\

The open house also honored the new name.  Alison Elsea with The Child First Center says "The facility allows people to get to know who we are, what we are able to do here, and what sets us apart from other social service agencies here in town that we sometimes get confused with."

The Macon County Child Advocacy Center first opened in 1999.
