Children’s Advocacy Center:

The Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) is the name for the group of programs, including Child Protection Team, Child Advocates and The Healing Tree that provide a compassionate and coordinated community response to  abused children in Central Florida to reduce trauma and help them heal.

The CAC is a child-friendly facility where professionals such as doctors, nurses, forensic interviewers, detectives, child advocates, therapists and child abuse investigators assemble to make joint decisions regarding the assessment, advocacy and treatment of child abuse cases. Child advocates also bridge the gap between assessment and treatment by providing support, advocacy and referrals.
