Yavapai Family Advocacy Center strives to help clients take back their power

The Yavapai Family Advocacy Center’s (YFAC) mission statement reads: “to reduce trauma to victims of abuse by providing a safe and supportive environment and facilitating a team approach to advocacy, investigation, and prosecution.”

But the people behind the organization describe their work a bit differently; they say they guide their clients to find their voice, take back their power, and rediscover their worth and value (or discover them for the first time).

“The best part [of our work here] is watching somebody … become their own hero,” said Missy Sikora, Director of YFAC.
