What Is A Child Advocacy Center?

A Nurturing Environment for Safe Transitions

Child Advocacy Centers are child-focused programs in which representatives of law enforcement, social services, prosecution, victim advocacy, medical and mental health personnel jointly intervene in cases involving sexual/physical assaults and other crimes against children through investigation, treatment and prosecution.

Organizations that use Child Advocacy Centers experience many benefits: More immediate follow-up to reports of child sexual and other mistreatment, more efficient medical referrals, reduction in the number of child victim interviews, increased success in prosecution and consistent support for child victims and their non offending family members.

The Four Corners Child Advocacy Center is accredited through the National Children’s Alliance.
