Located in Charlotte, Tennessee, (Dickson County) we work with police and child protection workers to talk with children in our safe and child-friendly location.

What is a Child Advocacy Center?

A children's advocacy center (CAC) is a child-focused, facility-based program in which representatives from many disciplines, including law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical, victim advocacy and child advocacy, work together to conduct interviews and make team decisions about investigation, treatment, management and prosecution of child abuse cases.
