Each year, more than 4,100 children walk through the doors of a Kansas CAC and receive child-centered investigative interviews, specialized therapeutic services and specialized medical evaluations on-site or through local partners. CAC Advocates deliver education, crisis intervention and on-going support to non-offending caregivers to aid them in resolving the abuse crisis.
Child abuse cases handled through a CAC are better coordinated between law enforcement and child protection services, compared to a traditional investigation. More children involved with a CAC receive specialized medical evaluations and are referred to appropriate mental health services. Parents and caregivers of children served by CACs are more satisfied with the investigation process. 
CACs save approximately $1,000 per case in services to children and families during the course of a child abuse investigation. Traditional investigations are 36% more expensive than a CAC-coordinated response. In Kansas, that savings translates to $3.5 million for the number of children served. 
The majority of CACs in Kansas participate in a statewide, universal Outcomes Measurement System using valid, reliable survey instruments to measure multiple indicators related to two critical outcomes:
 Multi-site Evaluation of Children’s Advocacy Centers (2006). Researchers: Cross, T., Jones, L. et. al. Crimes Against Children Research Center, University of New Hampshire.  Cost-Benefit Analysis of Community Responses to Child Maltreatment. Researchers: Shadoin, A, Formby, J. National Children’s Advocacy Center and University of Alabama.
