Who We Are

Bright Tomorrows Child Advocacy Center helps child victims of sexual abuse rediscover the joy, hope and dreams of childhood.

"Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future."
—John F. Kennedy

Bright Tomorrows, a non-profit agency in Pocatello, has a thirty-year history of providing services to the Greater Pocatello Area and is an accredited member of the National Children's Alliance.

Since 1984, Bright Tomorrows has worked directly with victims of child sexual abuse. Over the years, their commitment to healing the hurt and addressing the emotional and mental needs of these victims through counseling and supportive services has remained steadfast.

In the past decade, the National Children's Alliance explored and concluded that the most child friendly way to deal with the emotional, physical and mental needs of child victims would be to provide a child-friendly, 'one-stop' advocacy center in communities across the nation. In 2007 Bright Tomorrows sought capital campaign contributions in an effort to build an advocacy center.

The dream of a Child Advocacy Center in Pocatello became a reality in 2007 thanks to many generous contributors. Bright Tomorrows Child Advocacy Center is now housed in Tuscany House.
