Welcome to The Children's Advocacy Centers of North Carolina

Children's Advocacy Centers of North Carolina is an accredited state chapter of the National Children's Alliance, the national umbrella organization for children's advocacy centers dealing with child abuse.


The children's advocacy movement began in the 1980s. Each center is an independent agency, providing services for abused children, and relies on their local communities for support. By bringing together collaborative partners, such as local child protective services, law enforcement, prosecutors, medical and mental health providers, CAC's can make a positive difference in the lives of abused children by bringing professionals to the child instead of asking children and their families to access services through many different portals.

What does CACNC provide?

  • Technical support
  • Annual training through Reflections, a symposium on child abuse and neglect, along with other training that is pertinent to child abuse professionals throughout the year
  • Assistance with local center development
  • Networking and contacts with child abuse professionals across the state and nation

Mission Statement
To support local communities by promoting and assisting in the development, growth and continuation of accredited children's advocacy centers in order to better serve abused and neglected children and their families.
