The Savannah Center

Last year's annual fundraiser at the Savannah Center was a great success and we were blessed by increased guests and sponsor participation at this event. 

We look forward to seeing you there on March 10, 2018 at the Savannah Center in The Villages. Please visit our Bids 4 Kids page for more information.

Victim Advocate Program

In response to community need, our CAC is formed a Victim Advocate Program which began in 2014. We are always seeking volunteers who wish to serve as Victim Advocates. Volunteers who wish to be Victim Advocates will be asked to participate in extensive training in order to prepare them for this task.

If you are interested in becoming a Victim Advocate or would like more information about our Victim Advocate Program, please contact Diane Pisczek at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Medical Exam Area

On April 1, 2010 the Florida Department of Health awarded the CAC the Child Protection Team (CPT) contract for Lake and Sumter Counties. The CPT offers Forensic Interviews, medical exams and other risk assessments to child victims of abuse and their non-offending family members on a 24/7 basis for Lake and Sumter Counties.

This past year we celebrated our 6th anniversary of providing these services to the communities we serve. During that time period we have experienced significant growth. Since the start of the program, the CPT has performed more than 1000 medical exams and over 4000 interviews. We have also provided training sessions for Law Enforcement, the Department of Children and Families, LRMC Emergency Room staff, First Responders, local pediatricians and guidance counselors.
