Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

i'mPACT – Protecting Against Childhood Trauma seeks to reduce the negative impact of childhood trauma through various child-serving programs it operates within Tioga County, Pennsylvania. The most prevalent cause of child abuse and neglect is parent substance use. Parent substance use has increased substantially over the past decade and has lead to an increase in the number of infants born dependent on and affected by drugs/alcohol, the number of child abuse and neglect cases, and the number of out-of-home placements into foster care.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Tioga County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program

CASAs advocate for children in the foster care system. A CASA gets to know the child by talking with everyone in that child's life: parents and relatives, foster parents, teachers, medical professionals, attorneys, social workers and others. They use the information they gather to inform judges and others of what the child needs and what will be the best permanent home for them. A CASA volunteer is thoroughly trained and well supported by professional staff and functions as an officer of the Court.

Population(s) Served

The Tioga County Children's Advocacy Center works to provide victim advocacy services for child victims of abuse and neglect.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

i'mPACT brings together different professionals to share their skills and knowledge to combine services in such a way that biological, kinship, foster or adoptive parents, their families, and their communities have a fighting chance to improve outcomes for the young people they love. Together, we serve substance-exposed infants, child abuse/neglect victims, and foster children.

i'mPACT values keeping families together. Our programs are designed to help biological parents regain their health along with keeping their children healthy. We believe that recovery from substance use disorders is possible, achievable, and critical to creating healthy families.

i'mPACT operates in a Pennsylvania County which is 2nd in the state for the highest number of substantiated cases of child abuse/neglect. We operate four programs that serve children from birth through adolescents who are negatively impacted by their parent's substance use disorder.

i'mPACT has secured funding from local foundations and contracts with the local county-administered human services entity.
