Welcome to the Web site of the Dr. Bill Lewis Center for Children in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
We are a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide neutral, child-friendly forensic interviews and interagency, comprehensive assessments of reported child sexual abuse victims.
We serve eight counties in northeast Indiana, with Allen County being the largest.
The Lewis Center is named after the late Dr. Bill Lewis, long-time Fort Wayne neonatologist, whose life was dedicated to the care of and advocacy for children. The Lewis Center serves as the voice of justice for children whose trauma has often engulfed them in silencing fear.
The standardized interview process used by our neutral fact-finding team of professionals eliminates the need for multiple interviews of the child which re-traumatizes victims. The process also helps exonerate the falsely accused.
