Takes a Village to Protect a Child

Created June 2, 2017
The Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) is committed to using a multi-disciplinary team approach to assist children who are victims of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, or who have witnessed acts of violence, as well as providing these services to people of any age with developmental disabilities. All services will be provided in a supportive environment by individuals trained in national best practices to optimize positive outcomes and reduce trauma.

The CAC conducts forensic interviews as part of the investigative process when allegations of abuse have been made.  These interviews minimize additonal trauma to victims as it eliminates the need for further interviews of the victim.  Our forensic interviews also lead to an increase in pleas by the alleged suspect.  Thus, minimizing trauma to the victim as they do not have to face their alleged perpetrator in court.  

All of our services are provided at no cost to the victims and their families, and to our multi-disciplinary team partners that include, law enforcement, The Department of Children and Family Services, the District Attorney's Office, and County Counsel.  

Your donations will allow our center to continue providing our services at no cost to the children and families we serve.  Specifically, they will cover the cost of forensic interviews, water and snacks for the victims, and other general operating expenses.  

We need your support/donations now.  
Our center receives its funding from private donors such as yourselves and through grants. As many of you know, grants are awarded few and far in between.  

I've worked at  The Children's Advocacy Center for Child Abuse Assessment and Treatment for seven years.  I'm humbled and honored to work with the population that we serve.  

On behalf of the CAC, we thank you for support and donations.

The donations we've received thus far have allowed us to continue in our fight to prevent child abuse, and to give child victims a voice to share about their experience (s).

Join us in meeting our goal by making a donation that will allow us to help more child victims.

Did you know that there is a gap between donations received by organizations designed to protect animals and organizations that help child victims of abuse? For every $4 donated towards the prevention of animal abuse only $1 is donated towards the prevention of child abuse. Help us close this gap as children are important and deserve our help.
