Community Impact Newspaper reporter Kelley Chambers-Crimmins reports:
Twenty years ago, Janetta Michaels answered a newspaper ad from a startup organization in Plano called the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County. Today, Michaels oversees many of the center’s programs that help give a voice to victims of abuse and their families. What began with two staff members in a small building off 15th Street in 1992 is now a partnership made up of local law enforcement, medical personnel, Child Protective Services and the Collin County district attorney’s office.
Having been with the organization since the beginning, Michaels has a vision for taking the center to the next chapter by forging ties to local school and churches.
