Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

When a child has been traumatized by abuse, they are often subject to re-traumatization by the legal and state systems set in place to provide justice and protection. Children are subjected to telling their story to multiple people in often frightening environments, and interviewed by people with not specific training in dealing with children in crisis. Also, families are in crisis and do not have the resources to deal with the trauma of discovering their child has been victimized.

Charting impact

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

NKYCAC aims to protect child victims of abuse by providing a safe, child-friendly environment to conduct forensic interviews, provide non-emergency medical exams and to provide a family advocate. We work with law enforcement, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, prosecution and if warranted, the FBI in a coordinated effort to secure the disclosure and evidence in these cases. We also provide support and resources for the families to deal with the trauma of abuse.

At the request of law enforcement of Children's Services, a child is brought to our center where they are greeting in a comfortable home-like environment. A specially trained forensic interviewer conducts an interview with the child that will provide the legal basis of a criminal or civil proceedings to protect the child. Law enforcement and other workers are not seen by the child and all interviews are recorded. This process means that the child is only interviewed one time, alleviating the need to tell their story to multiple adults. At the same time, non-offending caregivers are provided with comforting support and resources to guide them through the process and they are provided follow up care as their case moves through the system.

The NKYCAC is housed in a specially designed building resembling a home, where the children can come in, play, have a snack and meet with a specially trained social worker. We have 2 interview rooms that can either be observed through 1 way glass or by live video feed. The Center employs 4 Forensic interviewers and 2 family advocates as well as an intake specialist. The NKYCAC is one of the oldest Children's Advocacy Centers and an award winning national model. We also provide training to all of our multi-disciplinary teams and the community at large.

For over 25 years the NKYCAC has been a leading force in advocating the Children's Advocacy Center model. We are currently able to see approximately 800 children per year, and hope to increase that number. We are adding a therapy service which will provide our children with the ability to continue in therapy at our center rather than be referred to an outside agency. We are also beginning work on Human Trafficking protocols to be used with our Multi-disciplinary teams.
