What is a CAC?
The CAC creates a team of professionals who serve to protect and heal a child who has endured trauma. It brings the agency professionals involved in a case together right from the initial disclosure of physical or sexual abuse or exploitation. The needs of the child victim and their non-offending family members come before all else. Under this model, the child comes to a child-friendly environment and meets with a trained interviewer while the other team members observe from another room via a video screen.
