Emmy's House Children's Advocacy Center, which operates under the umbrella of the Randolph County Family Crisis Center, was established in March 2018. A local police officer brought up the idea to the crisis center after handling a number of cases. It was then that the organization worked alongside city and county leaders, the District Attorney's Office, and other organizations to get the center opened up.
To reduce the devastating long-term effects that all forms of child abuse have on children, their families, and society through immediate, coordinated, child-focused services, education, and advocacy.
Emmy's House Children's Advocacy Center is a non-profit organization serving child abuse victims from Randolph County in conjunction with the District Attorney's Office, Randolph County Department of Social Services, Randolph County Sherriff's Office, Asheboro Police Department, Liberty Police Department, Archdale Police Department, and Randleman Police Department. The purpose is to provide a systematic, multi-disciplinary response to reported cases of child sexual abuse as well as physical abuse.
The development of Emmy's House Children's Advocacy Center was based upon the need for coordinated multi-disciplinary interventions to ensure the safety and well-being of the children in our community. Emmy's House Children's Advocacy Center provides a neutral, safe, child-friendly location for investigative team interviews, medical examinations, multi-disciplinary team meetings and case reviews, support for child victims and non-offending family members, referrals to appropriate community resources, and provides community awareness related to child abuse.

Our children’s advocacy center stands in honor of Emmary “Emmy” Spicer, remembering her and her courageous spirit. Though her life was short, just seven years, three of which she spent battling cancer, Emmy’s indomitable spirit and resiliency serve as an inspiration to numerous people. Just like Emmy, we hope that even in the toughest times, the courageous spirit of our clients will rally.
