Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know

Child and Adolescent Protection Center

Contact number | 202-476-4100

The Freddie Mac Foundation Child and Adolescent Protection Center at Children’s National Hospital is the only medical center in the District of Columbia with a team of health professionals dedicated to victims of child abuse and their families. We are one of few hospitals in the country using a team approach to assessing and treating these victims.

The Child and Adolescent Protection Center believes that all children have the right to develop and mature in a supportive, nurturing environment and that they have the need and the right to be protected from every form of violence, victimization and neglect. When children are victimized, they must be given appropriate medical and mental health assessment and treatment with dignity, respect and an appreciation for their emotional and intellectual maturity.
