Joining hands with 19 community agencies, the Child Advocacy Center (CAC) provides a safe and child-friendly place to interview, investigate and provide support for abused children. The CAC also provides prevention education for parents, professionals and agencies in our community. We look to a future where all children live in a safe and nurturing environment free from abuse. During FY 2016, our center served 773 children and their families and, by our coordinating efforts, saved the community more than $500,000.
