Child Advocacy Center (CAC)

Services for care, trauma, & treatment of child abuse

CAClogo.jpg

The Child Advocacy Center (CAC) is a child-friendly, community-oriented, safe environment where children and their families are offered the opportunity to receive comprehensive services when an allegation of child abuse has been made. It is a place where children can feel safe and at ease while being interviewed by a specially trained member of the CAC’s multidisciplinary child abuse investigation team (MDT).  This team consists of law enforcement, child protective services, mental health, medical, prosecution, advocates and other professionals trained to work with child victims and their family members.

 

The CAC also provides on-site trauma therapy, medical exams, victim advocacy, crisis counseling, courtroom preparation, education and information for child victims and their non-offending family members. The CAC is approved by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services and accredited by the National Children’s Alliance as meeting the highest standards of care and services.

The Child Advocacy Center coordinates the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child abuse cases in our community, while providing resources, support and interventions for the abused child and their non-offending family members or care-givers.  The CAC emphasizes the coordination of investigations and intervention services by bringing together professionals and agencies as a multidisciplinary team to create a child-focused approach to child abuse cases.

Treatment Program for Adolescents with Problematic Sexual Behaviors

The PSB-A program adheres to a family-focused, person-centered philosophy in working with adolescents with illegal and problematic sexual behavior (PSB) and their families. We acknowledge that adolescent sexual behavior is serious, must be addressed effectively, and that adolescents have the capacity to learn to make healthier and safer choices. Further, the program emphasizes that adolescents are most successful when they have support from adults in their lives, especially and active caregiver in the home.
