The Child Advocacy Center (CAC) is a regional center located at the Suzanne Gresham Center where interviews and investigations of children who have experienced abuse are conducted in a concise manner.
The CAC allows the community law enforcement and legal teams to pursue reports of child abuse more effectively and efficiently, resulting in higher prosecution rates. Most importantly, the CAC offers protection in a nurturing and healing environment for victims of child abuse.
The Child Advocacy Center has received full national accreditation by the National Children’s Alliance and is one of the few CAC facilities that meet the rigorous standards to receive this accreditation.
