Children’s Advocacy Centers (CAC)
Cascade County is proud to have a full-service Children’s Advocacy Centers (CAC) in our community. The CAC works with our local Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) to respond to allegations of child abuse and neglect in a safe, child-friendly setting where the needs of the child are top priority. In this one location, all of the many professionals who need to meet with a child and family potentially experiencing abuse can do so in one place. This team of professionals collaborate and minimize additional trauma by eliminating the need to re-tell facts and stories repeatedly, and strive to provide compassionate, hopeful support in one location.
