The Child Advocacy Center of Sedgwick County has earned accreditation from the National Children’s Alliance.

The distinction should open the doors for more services and more grant money for the four-year-old center, executive director Diana Schunn said. The center serves nearly 2,500 children a year.

The center began working toward accreditation immediately after being founded in 2008, Schunn said. It joins 16 other accredited child advocacy centers around Kansas and more than 500 nationwide.
