ELIZABETH - Children who are the unfortunate victims of sexual abuse in Union County may now receive the help they deserve all under one roof.

Previously, children would have to travel from one building to the other in order to get all the help they need.

The new Child Advocacy Center in Elizabeth is five times bigger than the old location. The building has enough room to house all service professionals under one roof.

The Union County Prosecutor's Office says it can now complete in six hours what used to take three days. The quicker process and one-stop location minimizes trauma to young victims who have already gone through enough.
