The CAC’s goal is to empower community members and professionals with information, knowledge, and tools to positively impact children and families who have experienced abuse.

Our trainings focus on the following:

  • Prevention: Increasing awareness and understanding of child abuse and fostering safety;
  • Intervention: Providing information on recognizing the signs, responding to disclosure, reporting abuse, and the multidisciplinary team response;
  • Treatment & Therapy: Increasing skills and knowledge for professionals who are helping victims recover and heal.
