The Edmondson-Telford Center provides services to Hall and Dawson County residents under the age of 18 who are victims of sexual or severe physical abuse or neglect, as well as their non-offending family members. We offer a safe environment for crisis intervention and medical advocacy as the victim moves through the examination and investigation steps. We also work with other local agencies to support the victim through the court process. It is our goal to assist agencies, also working on behalf of child victims, and provide information to ensure the child’s safety and begin the healing process.
The Center has served over 1,200 children and families since beginning in 1997. Edmondson-Telford has conducted over 500 forensic examination interviews of sexually abused victims and coordinated hundreds of child abuse investigations with law enforcement and social services agencies. All services are provided free-of-charge to victims and are provided to English and non-English speaking persons.
Through the compassionate, professional services provided by the Edmondson-Telford Center, the trauma experienced by victimized children can be significantly reduced. Also, law enforcement officials receive higher quality evidence for use in prosecution of their cases. Our multi-disciplinary approach to child abuse cases has proven critical in the successful prosecution of countless offenders and has increased the prosecution rates of child offenders in Hall and Dawson Counties.
Currently, the Edmondson-Telford Center for Children and Hall-Dawson CASA program are combining their resources to construct a new facility to co-locate these agencies and offer their combined services of assisting child victims. This new facility will centralize the services offered by both agencies, thus increasing victim’s access and offering a more compassionate, child-friendly and child-centered campus. The new facility, The Little House, will enable victims to rebuild their lives while in a caring, safe home environment. More information about our new building, The Little House, is available here.

Our banana foster gelato is courtesy of my mother-in-law. She was visiting in January and wanted something sweet. We only had bananas, leftover vanilla bean gelato and cinnamon so I decided to make banana foster with vanilla gelato. Before she ate a bite, she reminded me that she is not a fan of bananas. After her last bite, I reminded her that gelato makes everything taste so much better. At that moment, a new dreamy gelato flavor was created.
Our banana fosters gelato has been a hit in the store. It is super delicious with the dark chocolate gelato.

After a year of consideration, we are so excited to offer our delicious, artisan gelato prepackaged for events.
We wanted to keep our packaging simple because the gelato deserves all the attention. The clear top is perfect for admiring the gelato before consumption.
Our prepackaged gelato is perfect for large and small events.

We served several traditional flavors like pistachio gelato and mango sorbet. In addition, we served some unique flavors like sweet cheese gelato and burnt caramel pecan gelato. The guests were full of energy and passion. We served over 300 guests in 30 minutes. I have never moved so fast!
I wish I took some pictures, but once we finish setting up, we were serving gelato. I spoke with the photographer who confirmed that she too was unable to take pictures of the gelato. I promise to take pictures next time and share them on our blog.
