Who We Are

What is a Children's Advocacy Center?

Advocacy Services

Advocacy services are provided throughout the life of the case in the criminal justice system. An advocate meets with the non-offending parent/caregiver at the time of the child's forensic interview, makes referrals to other needed services at the CAC or at other community agencies, prepares children for court proceedings, and accompanies the children to all court proceedings. The advocate many times serves as a liaison between the family and the District Attorney's Office.
