What is a Children’s Advocacy center?

Children’s Advocacy Centers (CAC) work in conjunction with law enforcement, prosecution, child protective services (DHR), medical services, mental health services, and victim advocacy services to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to handling the issue of child abuse. The children’s advocacy center coordinates the collaboration among all the agencies involved in order to better serve each case.
