The Family Violence Institute at NAU created a program, ACASI, four years ago to help children who are overlooked. This program support help in a variety of areas, from counseling, mentorship and filing legal claims.

Holly Hulen, the associate director of Family Violence Institute says, they help these families with emotional healing, financial support and social connections.

Melisa Tunley, Mentor fot the Family Violence Institute, emphasizes how important for these children to have a person stand by them with conducive help. Many offenders are put in jail or commit suicide, leaving these invisible children with relatives, who don't provide the needed support.
