Mission Statement

The Children’s Advocacy Center is dedicated to child victims of physical and sexual abuse and strives to reduce trauma through a unified effort that facilitates thorough investigations, effective prosecution and the healing of children and their non-offending caregivers.

Description

The Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) model is a child-focused, facility-based program in which representatives from many disciplines -- Law Enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical and victim advocacy -- working together, conducting joint forensic interviews and making team decisions about the investigation, treatment, management and prosecution of child abuse cases. CACs are community-based programs designed to meet the unique needs of a community, so no two CACs look exactly alike. They share a core philosophy that child abuse is a multifaceted community problem and no single agency, individual or discipline has the necessary knowledge, skills or resources to serve the needs of all children and their families. They also share a belief that the combined wisdom and professional knowledge of professionals of different disciplines will result in a more complete understanding of case issues and the most effective, child and family-focused system response.
