Mission Statement

The Children’s Advocacy Center of the Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit (CAC-LMJC) is a child friendly home that assists in the centralized activities of all agencies involved in the intervention and prevention of child abuse. We offer support for physical and emotional safety of children and their non-offending caregivers, while facilitating joint investigations conducted by specially trained professionals.


Children Advocacy Centers are modeled on the simple but powerful concept of coordination between community agencies and professionals involved in the intervention system. The purpose of interagency collaboration is to coordinate intervention so as to reduce potential trauma to children and families and improve services, while preserving and respecting the rights and obligation of each to pursue their respective mandates. The CAC-LMJC’s primary functions are:

1. To provide forensic interviews, medical exams, and therapy with children who are suspected to be victims of abuse. These services are provided upon referral from law enforcement agencies and the Dept. of Family and Children Services.

2. To facilitate communication between agencies involved with the child and with the investigation and prosecution of abuse.

3. To provide families with referrals to community resources providing medical, financial, housing, parenting, or therapeutic support.

4. To provide training, education, and to raise community consciousness regarding child sexual abuse identification and prevention.
