A Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) is a comprehensive, child-centered program based in a facility that provides an immediate and compassionate response to a child’s outcry of abuse. CACs use a team approach to coordinate the investigation and treatment services for children involved in allegations of sexual abuse or serious physical abuse.

Each year, more than 4,500 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 ongoing support to non-offending caregivers to aid them in resolving the abuse crisis.
