Mission Statement

The mission of the Denver Children's Advocacy Center is to prevent abuse, strengthen families and restore childhood.


In 1996, DCAC began to provide treatment to child victims ages seven through seventeen, although with no home of our own we had to provide services off-site.

In 2004, we began serving children as young as one year old. We also signed an historic memorandum of understanding with the Denver Police Department, the Denver District Attorney's Office and the Denver Department of Human Services to conduct all forensic interviews of children under 15 where sexual abuse is suspected or where the child has witnessed homicide or other violent crimes.

Today, all of the services needed by child victims and their families - forensic interviews, medical exams, assessment and treatment, and victim support services - are clustered around one central location. DCAC is the hub where representatives from many disciplines meet to discuss and make decisions about the investigation, assessment, treatment and prosecution of child abuse cases. They work together in the best interests of the children, providing an immediate response and ongoing support to help children and families recover from the trauma of abuse or violence.
