Courtesy: VidaNyx’s Journey to Protect Child Abuse Survivor Stories

Jun 4, 2021

Free monthly offering for every child advocacy center sharing courtesy forensic interviews.

VidaNyx is a social enterprise that recognizes that every moment of a child survivors’ journey is a part of their story.  Their humanity. We love child advocacy centers because, by design, they are child-centric – bending the system around the child to minimize the trauma and maximize the opportunity for healing. Record the story of the child’s trauma in a forensic interview so that pain doesn’t have to be retold unnecessarily.

At VidaNyx, we are an extension of the child advocacy field from which we were created – enabling secure digital sharing of forensic interview recordings and other sensitive evidence across incredible multidisciplinary organizations delivering justice, healing, and hope.

Giving back to the child advocacy field

As we considered how we might expand our support of child advocacy, it occurred to us.  While we are on our journey to protect every child’s story, what service can we provide every child advocacy center?  Grow a movement to Protect Survivor Stories. Child advocacy centers regularly conduct courtesy forensic interviews for peer centers and multidisciplinary organizations in different jurisdictions.  Recordings from these interviews are often replicated on DVDs and priority mailed to partner organizations.  The forensic interview recordings of trauma from child abuse are handled by many in the pathway to get to the limited parties who really need access.  And in addition to the risk of exposure in handling of this evidence, it is also costly and time inefficient.  What if we could start with every child advocacy center and begin to solve for secure courtesy forensic interview sharing?

So that’s what we’re doing.  Offering every child advocacy center access to securely send three courtesy interviews a month at no cost.  Every center.  Every single month.  Making it simple to extend your protection of the child – by honoring the rights of these children to the same dignity in the protection of their vulnerable truths.

A Letter From Our New CEO: Sara Boyd

I am tremendously honored to join VidaNyx as CEO. Having spent nearly 20 years of my career in the nonprofit sector, most recently as CEO of the Omaha Community Foundation, I have a personal commitment to delivering ​world-class technology that prioritizes the security, healing, and justice you provide child survivors.

Protecting Child Forensic Interview Video Evidence

Across the US, child advocacy centers are focused on providing a continuum of services to children who have suffered from incidents of child abuse and neglect. To effectively provide services without retraumatization, child forensic interviews are video recorded so they can be shared with law enforcement, prosecution, child welfare agencies, health professionals and when necessary, defense attorneys – without forcing the child to have to retell the story of their trauma unnecessarily.

Turning a Tech Talk into a ‘Nology Walk

When I sat down to write this post, I had just returned home from visiting a child advocacy center after training their team on a new cloud-based video management solution. The CAC I visited conducts more than 2,000 child forensic interviews per year, and my mind was full with all the ways CACs can benefit from cloud technology.

From Darkness to Light with Tech for the Public Interest

There is no reason why people in the U.S. should have more information about their nearest coffee shop than where to go for sexual assault response. This summer I was introduced to one of the nation’s leading sexual assault reform advocates, Leah Griffin. I immediately knew her powerful story would change our nation.
