The Child Advocacy Center is a place where young victims of abuse come to safely and comfortably share their difficult stories. The children we serve have endured much in their young lives: physical and sexual abuse; online exploitation; child pornography; neglect; and more.

Inside its doors, children are greeted by delightful murals, a toy-filled family room and professionals trained to address the unique needs of children who have been hurt. It provides these children two main services – Forensic Interviews and Sexual Assault Forensic Exams. The evidence and information its gathers is then shared with a “team” of law enforcement officials, Children’s Division investigators, juvenile officers and more. Together, this team analyzes the information, discusses outcomes and decides on a safety plan that champions the best interests of each child.
