The CAC stands up for abused and neglected children. The staff stays with the child victims as they tell their story of abuse, provides counseling sessions and prepares families and protects victims for a court system that can be quite frightening and overwhelming. The Center works with outside agencies to coordinate long term care to ensure child victims get the resources they need every single step of the way.
