Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Intervention Services

Intervention services includes therapy (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), victim advocacy, and forensic interviewing (Cornerstone Protocol). Therapy seeks to reduce lifelong trauma and its resulting long-time negative consequences. Victim Advocates provide education, support, and referral to non-offending parents and caregivers so that they can fully support their children, ensure their safety, and support therapy outcomes.  As part of a team effort with investigators and prosecutors, the CAC's forensic interviewers conduct neutral fact-finding interviews with children after reported abuse. This information is used in making child protection, criminal offense, therapeutic and intervention decisions.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
