Our Services

The CAC receives referrals from law enforcement, medical professionals, and the Department of Family and Children’s Services. The services we provide are free, comprehensive, and designed to meet the special needs of each child and their caregivers.

Forensic Interviews

Forensic Interviews provide children with a safe space to tell their story to experts who will listen to them, protect them, and help them heal. Forensic interviews are essential in the investigation of child physical and sexual abuse cases and can produce evidence critical to the investigation and criminal prosecution. 

Medical Exams

Our specially trained medical staff provides age-appropriate evaluations for young victims of abuse and neglect. Youth often are relieved to learn that their bodies are healthy.
