REDDING, Calif. - The Children's Legacy Center in Downtown Redding will help children across Shasta County who have been abused, neglected or exploited.

They want to create a safe space for at-risk children, as well as victims of human trafficking.

The center's director said one of the main focuses of the center is to help children deal with the trauma and minimize the invasiveness of an investigation.

"The core of the model of what we will provide is we'll limit the traumatization that takes place throughout the investigative process, so a child is not going to have to be interviewed multiple times by multiple different agencies," said director Kimberly Johnson. "They'll come into the center and get one interview."

Johnson says this is just one of the center's unique approach to helping at-risk children in their recovery process.

There are approximately 950 similar centers across the country, each customized to the needs of their community.

The center hopes to open its new 3,100 square-feet building in the spring.
