Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) provides a multidisciplinary, child-focused approach to the investigation and intervention of cases with allegations of child sexual abuse, severe physical abuse, or witness to violence. Child victims of abuse often suffer from complex trauma. In addition, there is fear, anger, confusion and anxiety for a family that suddenly find themselves in crisis, involved in investigations by the police and child protective services, possibly in need of specialized medical attention and in need of counseling to cope with their traumatic events.
CACs are designed to reduce the stress on child victims and their families created by traditional investigation and prosecution procedures, and to improve the effectiveness of the intervention. CAC staff help the child and family navigate through the investigative and legal process, offer specialized sexual assault medical care and consultation, as well as, referrals to appropriate mental health and other community services necessary to begin the healing process. Finally, the CAC monitors the family with periodic reviews as their case makes its way through the legal system. There is no other agency in the county that provides this coordinated response and global service to child victims of abuse and their families.
The Department of Justice estimates there are over 300, 000 cases of child sexual abuse each year (Finkelhor, et. al, August, 2008). A study by the Center for Disease Control found 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men reported being sexually abused as children (www.cdc.gov/ace/prevalence). Left untreated, those suffering adverse childhood events like sexual abuse are at greater risk for health problems and risky behaviors including drug and alcohol abuse, obesity, depression, and suicide attempts. The CAC focuses on the legal aspects in complex abuse cases while also paying very close attention to treatment needs to address the known societal impact of trauma to children and families.
The CAC provides these services to the residents of Bristol County, professionals serving the county and agencies serving the children of Bristol County. All services are provided free of charge.
