Mission Statement

To protect the children in our community by providing an interdisciplinary approach to improve early detection, intervention, joint investigation, and successful prosecution of child abuse cases; coordinate resources and facilitate treatment for child victims and their families; and conduct community education regarding the prevention of child abuse.

Description

Since March of 2000, Gulf Coast Children’s Advocacy Center has transformed the lives of victims of child abuse by offering a refuge for children and their families to cope with the terrible crimes of child abuse while reducing the fear and further trauma that its report and investigation often creates.

CAC operates on the fundamental belief that the best interests of the child victim should be protected. Gulf Coast Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) provides a compassionate alternative to traditional investigations. Designed especially for kids, our CAC brings all necessary services for child abuse cases together in one location. This is done by supporting and coordinating the efforts of child abuse professionals. The integration of the different disciplines involved in the child protection system at the CAC enable child abuse cases to be more thoroughly investigated. CAC provides a single point of contact for child abuse victims and their families to access services such as forensic interviews, medical evaluations, mental health counseling and victim advocacy support.
