The Mission of the Safe Passage Child Advocacy Center is to provide a safe, child-friendly environment to a child who has been abused. The center will make services easily available & convenient for victims and families by offering forensic interviews and follow-up counseling at one location.
The Child Advocacy Center (CAC) of York County is a child abuse evaluation and treatment center. The CAC is aimed to be child-centered and to prevent children from being re-victimized.
Services provided include victim advocacy and therapy for children and non-offending family members and forensic interviews. These services are provided free of charge.
Staff members at the CAC collaborate with investigators of many disciplines. This multidisciplinary team approach brings together under one umbrella the professionals and agencies needed to offer comprehensive services: law enforcement, child protective services, juvenile court, the solicitor’s office, mental health professionals, and the medical community. This is done in effort to increase communication between investigating parties and reduce duplication of services.
