What is a Children's Advocacy Center?
WHO WE ARE
Child-friendly facilities where children and their non offending family members feel safe enough to get the help they need to stop abuse and begin the process of healing.
A center where representatives from many disciplines meet to discuss and make decisions about investigation, treatment and prosecution of child abuse cases.
Prevention and early intervention is more likely to create a lasting positive change rather than trying to address the problems later
We use a multidisciplinary team (MDT) approach which brings together all the professionals and agencies needed to offer comprehensive services; law enforcement, child protective services, prosecution, mental health, the medical community and advocacy.
