Programs

The Memphis Child Advocacy Center (CAC) supports safety for children through informed prevention, community collaboration, and a team approach to healing and justice for victims of child sexual and severe physical abuse. Children who come to the CAC benefit from the best investigative and therapeutic services available-and get a real chance to get their childhood back. The CAC coordinates the team of professionals needed to confront severe child abuse. CAC staff members work alongside prosecutors, law enforcement officers, child protection workers, and medical clinicians from 16 local agencies. Together, these highly trained professionals form a coordinated team that responds, investigates and intervenes in cases of suspected child sexual abuse or severe physical abuse. The majority of these cases involve child sexual abuse. CAC Services include specialized forensic interviews, therapy using the evidence-based Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy model, facilitation of the team approach, and prevention training for adults and youth-serving organizations.
