In 2003, the ChildSafe Center-CAC was developed out of a desire to protect abused children from being further traumatized during the process of the investigation and prosecution of their cases.
Although we work with children who have been abused, neglected and often hurt in unimaginable and unspeakable ways, our message is one of healing, hope and resiliency. Instead of focusing on the pain and despair caused by the trauma, we help children find their voices to share their stories to stop the abuse. We also help them find their inner strength and courage to face the abuse not as victims, but as survivors.
Our efforts focus on creating the most child-focused approach to the investigation, prosecution and treatment of child abuse. The facility and services are specifically designed to create an atmosphere that is private, safe and child-friendly. We work side by side with local law enforcement, prosecutors, child protective service workers, and treatment providers to provide a team of professionals investigating child abuse in an efficient and effective way that not only supports and advocates for the rights of the child, but also has the added benefit of a cost savings to the community.
