Liberty House also provides information and support for families and caregivers. Liberty House serves children of all ages -- from infants to age 18 -- with concerns of sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect. Services are voluntary and free of cost to the family. Liberty House also strives to serve as a resource for the community on the issue of child abuse and its prevention.
