Thank you for your interest in the Madison County Child Advocacy Center (CAC). The CAC provides professional intervention and supportive services to fight child abuse. Most importantly, the CAC provides a safe haven for children to talk about the physical or sexual abuse they may have experienced and to help in limiting the number of times a child has to be interviewed. Before the CAC opened, a child who was a victim or witnessed a violent crime would often be interviewed by eight to 12 different people before the case went to trial. Because of the CAC, abused children no longer have to endure such a strenuous interviewing process and authorities are better able to prosecute abuse cases.
The vision of the Madison County Children’s Advocacy Center Site is that it will be a safe and nurturing environment through which all children and families will be empowered to overcome the trauma and devastating effects of child abuse.
