The USF Health Child Protection Team provides medical, psychological and psychosocial assessments to children who are victims of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. The purpose of these assessments is to assist the Department of Children and Families and law enforcement in their investigation of the alleged abuse and to provide recommendations to minimize the risk of re-abuse. The Team, who is housed at Mary Lee's House at 2806 N. Armenia Avenue in Tampa, is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Child Protection Team uses a multidisciplinary approach for the evaluation and treatment of the abused and neglected child and family. The Team acts as a resource to primary investigators of allegations of abuse.
