We serve child survivors of physical and sexual abuse ages birth through 18 in Hampshire County. All services are free of charge and available for as long as needed.
MISSION STATEMENT
Our mission is to prevent and end child abuse by providing safety, healing, and justice.
 WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
The Children’s Advocacy Center of Hampshire County (CAC) provides
a coordinated, culturally competent, multi-disciplinary team response to allegations of child abuse in a dedicated, child-friendly setting. The CAC brings together child-protection workers, law enforcement, prosecution, victim advocacy, and medical and mental-health providers to offer child survivors and their caregivers comprehensive services designed to meet their individual needs. The CAC offers support and resources to address child abuse, commercial sexual exploitation of children, and problematic sexual behavior in children. The CAC also provides education and training to community members on child safety, online safety, and mandated reporting.
UPCOMING EVENTS
April is Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month. We will hold our second annual community-wide luminaria event, “This Little Light of Mine,” to honor
the more than 2,000 survivors of abuse we have served. Throughout the month of April, cities and towns in Hampshire County will be flying the child-abuse awareness flag to remind communities of the collective work we need to do to keep all children safe.
