FullSizeRender (1)On Tuesday, June 27, Child’s Voice had the opportunity to host Tyler Tordsen, a representative of Senator Mike Rounds’ staff in Sioux Falls. The Director of Child’s Voice, Stacy Weller, was happy to lead the tour, saying, “I love when we are able to share the great work of child advocacy centers.” During Tordsen’s visit, Weller shared that her centers “role is to ensure that all children across the state of SD are served by highly trained professionals who are dedicated and committed to working together to pursue the truth in child abuse investigations and ultimately for the benefit of the child so healing may begin.”

Tyler Tordsen, the Southeast Regional Director for Senator Rounds, currently oversees operations of the Sioux Falls office, including staffing, constituent services, and community outreach to the immediate and surrounding areas. Speaking of his time at the center, Tordsen said “I really appreciate the tough – yet critically important – work that Child’s Voice and CACSD is doing for children in South Dakota. I always appreciate the opportunity to learn more about the organizations and people working hard to make a difference in our community.”

Following the tour, Tordsen and CACSD’s Chapter Coordinator, Nick Bratvold, sat down to discuss ways in which the Senator can support the South Dakota chapter and its centers going forward. Specifically, Victims of Child Abuse Act (VOCAA) and Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) funding, the major sources of funding for National Children’s Alliance, its chapter, and centers.
