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
Develop, train and sustain high quality Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs) and Multidisciplinary Teams (MDTs).
CACNC believes that black lives matter. Many of the children and families we serve are people of color. We value their lives and desire that they grow up in a world where their lives are valued not in spite of their color, but because diversity makes our world a better place. We stand firmly against racism and police brutality in any form. While some of our most valuable partners in the fight against child abuse are our law enforcement partners, we understand that bad cops are a threat to the law enforcement who risk their lives every day to protect children and others in our state. We are committed to standing against racial injustice and police brutality both out of respect and appreciation for the lives of people of color and our law enforcement partners.
