Director Stacie LeBlanc accepts the award on behalf of the Audrey Hepburn Children at Risk Evaluation Center.

The New Orleans Division is pleased to honor the Audrey Hepburn Children at Risk Evaluation (CARE) Center at Children’s Hospital of New Orleans as a recipient of the 2012 Director’s Community Leadership Award.

The Audrey Hepburn CARE Center provides counseling for sexually and physically abused children. In 1985, Children’s Hospital of New Orleans began offering services specifically for the medical diagnosis and treatment of children suspected of being sexually abused. Since becoming affiliated with the Audrey Hepburn CARE Center in 2003, the hospital has expanded its services to handle cases of severe physical abuse, neglect, and false allegations. The Audrey Hepburn CARE Center also provides counseling and education on injury prevention and pediatric forensic medicine to aid in the proper recognition, intervention, protection, prevention, and care of maltreated children.

The FBI New Orleans Division coordinates with the Audrey Hepburn CARE Center to conduct interviews of child victims, refer cases for forensic examinations, and request assistance on cyber crime investigations involving young victims. Additionally, the center hosts free monthly meetings and training seminars to teach communities about child abuse prevention and educate law enforcement and medical professionals on the value of forensic interview methodology.

In a ceremony at FBI Headquarters, Director Robert S. Mueller, III recognized the recipients of the 2012 Director’s Community Leadership Award. These leaders, selected by their area FBI field office, have demonstrated outstanding contributions to their local communities through service. The FBI is grateful for the work of each of these individuals and organizations on behalf of their communities.

“Whatever the motivation—an unfilled need, a tragic occurrence, a desire to give back—these are people who make things happen and enlist others in their cause,” said Director Mueller. “They are activists who have earned their prestige through good works.”
