The Children’s Advocacy Center of Erie County, Inc. is dedicated to the delivery of a timely, effective, coordinated, community response to allegations of child abuse and to child abuse prevention. Our services will promote the safety and well-being of children while reducing trauma in a child-friendly environment.
Programs and Services
We coordinate the community response to child abuse by providing forensic interviews in a child friendly-setting of children who are suspected to be victims of sexual or physical abuse, neglect or witnesses of crimes. We convene the Multidisciplinary Team of individuals who investigate cases or provide services to victims insuring that the child stays as the central focus throughout the process. We provide child abuse prevention education to the community, mandatory reporter training, and minimal facts interviewing training for professionals. We also coordinate the ACT: Raising Safe Kids violence prevention parenting program in Erie County.
