Why It Works

Child advocacy centers (CACs) were able to support over 4,400 children across West Virginia in 2019-2020 alone. According to a study conducted by the National Children’s Advocacy Center, our commitment to the CAC model saved taxpayers $3 million by allowing us to help victims of abuse and those reporting it find a safe, protective environment that promotes high-quality care and compassion.
