http://www.suffolkcac.org/ unites public, private and community partners to promote safety, healing and justice for child victims and their families.
By law, a number of agencies must investigate all reports of alleged abuse.
Helping abused children and their families requires an approach that addresses the physical, emotional and legal dimensions of abuse. And it requires a coordinated response from expert professionals to reduce stress throughout the investigation and intervention process.
The Children's Advocacy Center works in partnership with all the necessary agencies and specialists to coordinate a plan of action.
Together, we work with police, prosecutors, social workers, advocates, medical and mental health professionals and others to provide high-quality, specialized services for abused children and their families. What's more, we provide many of our services in the comfort and convenience of our child-friendly location.
In addition to our work with children and families, we also provide training to community members who work with children. Training includes signs and indicators of violence, responding to disclosure, what action steps to take and more.
