Child Advocacy Center: Information for Referral Sources and Professionals

Central Minnesota Child Advocacy CenterA Child Advocacy Center (CAC) provides a safe, child-friendly environment for interviews and medical evaluations for children and their families who may have experienced sexual abuse, physical abuse, sexual exploitation or witnessed a violent crime. Historically, children who were victims of abuse were shuffled from agency to agency.

Today, the CAC model brings the system to the child. The Central Minnesota Child Advocacy Center, located in Sartell, offers a “one-stop approach” to children and their families. The multidisciplinary team includes: law enforcement officers, victims’ advocates, medical providers, mental health professionals, prosecuting attorneys and child protection workers.
