Services

All services are provided at no charge and include:

 

Anyone can refer a child to our counseling program to receive services. Law Enforcement, the State Attorney's Office or the Department of Children and Families can refer a child for a Forensic Interview or medical exam.

 

 

Play Therapy

Play Therapy places children in a setting where they are in charge and helps them work out their issues through safe and guided therapeutic play situations. The CAC has a Master's level Registered Play Therapist Supervisor and a fully equipped Play Therapy room to offer these services to young child victims.

Art Therapy

Art Therapy can be used to help a child release his or her emotions associated with the abuse experience. The CAC has a Master’s level Art Therapist/Licensed Mental Health Counselor trained to offer these services to young child victims.

Woolf, Therapy Dog

Animal-Assisted Therapy is used to provide children with animal interaction so that they may feel safe and secure in the counseling environment. Woolf, our Therapy Dog, provides support to children during interviews and counseling sessions.

Child Protection Team

The Center offers Forensic Interviews, medical exams, specialized interviews, psycho-social assessments and other services through our Child Protection Team (CPT). We have two Board Certified Pediatricians and two ARNPs on staff to provide medical exams on a 24/7 basis.

In response to community need, our CAC is formed a Victim Advocate Program, which began in 2014. We are currently seeking volunteers who wish to serve as Victim Advocates.

Our Multidisciplinary Team is made up of collaborating agency representatives who work together to facilitate the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child victims of abuse.

Our staff is available to make presentations on abuse prevention to schools, church groups and daycare facilities and other community groups.
