Justice for Children Center
The Child Advocacy Center (CAC) brings together members of the legal, medical, social services, mental health and victim advocate professions. The goal is to reduce the number of times a child-victim is interviewed and to take those interviews out of intimidating locations. These locations can include: police stations, hospital emergency rooms, social services, district attorney’s office or even the location of the abuse, if it occurred in the home. By reducing the number of interviews, we can reduce the possibility of causing further systems trauma many victims suffer. The use of the CAC with its multi-disciplinary approach helps to enhance criminal prosecution and can strengthen family court dispositions that are in the best interest of the child.
