What is a Children's Advocacy Center?
At a Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC), the abused children tell their story ONCE to a trained interviewer who knows the right questions to ask to not re-traumatize the child while finding the facts crucial to the child’s case. A team of professionals, including Medical Professionals, Law Enforcement, Child Protection Services, Victim Advocacy and Prosecution, and other professionals, decide together how to help the child based on the interview. These caring professionals rally around the child, so children have everything they need, all under one roof. Additionally, CACs offer evidence-based Therapy that heals kids from trauma and helps them reclaim their futures. CACs also provide medical exams, case management, and other services known as the Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) response which is a core part of the work of CACs.
