The primary goal of all National Children's Alliance Children’s Advocacy Centers (CAC) is to ensure that children disclosing abuse are not further victimized by the intervention systems designed to protect them. CACs are child-focused, facility-based programs with representatives from many disciplines working together to effectively investigate, prosecute, and treat child abuse. CAC locations are not only child-focused, but designed to create a sense of safety and security for child victims.
The real question becomes “What happens to a child victim once he or she discloses?”
