Joyce, a former child client of MCAP’s, and Lisa, her MCAP advocate, talk about Joyce’s journey from the frightened child victim she was to the thriving young woman she is today, and how advocacy has empowered both of them. MCAP’s Executive Director Mary Pugh, MCAP’s Board President Kate Imbesi, Survivor Advocate Sarah Klein, and the Chair of Montgomery County’s Board of Commissioners Val Arkoosh also share their perspectives on the the life-saving importance of MCAP’s advocacy to child victims of abuse and neglect.
