Partner Agencies: The McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center
Todd’s Fund is constantly working to build relationships with agencies in Central New York who advocate for children and their families. We have been working on a few cases with The McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center, and we would like to feature them in this issue.
Well known throughout the community, McMahon Ryan is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to ending child abuse through intervention and education. The organization offers a safe, child-friendly process for abused children and their families, supported by a committed, professional team specializing in the investigation, prosecution and treatment of child abuse.
In 1998, members of the McMahon and Ryan families of Syracuse began working with members of the Child Abuse Management Team who were professionals involved with child abuse efforts. After much research and coordination, the group concluded that the creation of a facility that focused on child abuse issues was a critical need in the community. Hence, The McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Site was incorporated in December of 1998.
In 2011, the organization moved and co-located with partnering agencies with more than 60 professionals engaged in preventing child abuse. The doors officially opened to a state-of-the-art center in August, 2011. Since then, they have established the region’s premier Child Advocacy Center.
