The Children’s Advocacy Center of Southeastern Indiana has hired Emily Hankins (right) to serve as a Child and Family Advocate at our new Greensburg Center.
Hankins’ has a BA in Criminal Justice from IUPUI and worked for the Department of Child Services for 10 years with experience as a family case manager and foster care specialist. She will help non-offending caregivers and family members as a Child and Family Advocate, guiding them on their case and what’s next in the criminal justice system.
“I’ve been involved in cases like the ones that come to CAC Southeast in the past. Being able to work closely with children and families at a time of crisis isn’t easy, but I’m here for these kids and I care about their futures,” says Hankins.
Heather Scott (right) also joins our team as a Forensic Interviewer. She’ll be working in Greensburg, too. Scott earned her BA in Psychology from Cumberland College and has 12 years of experience as the Home School Advisor for Greensburg Elementary School. She will work with children involved in alleged instances of abuse, neglect, and witnesses to crimes.
“I’ve devoted my career to helping children and their families receive counseling and support through education and other types of team interventions. Working at CACSEI is a dream job for me,” says Scott.
Executive Director Stephanie Back said, “The future of our Greensburg location is in good hands with these two working for the benefit of kids. They have the heart and energy needed to be successful.”
