Children’s Home Society of West Virginia
We Help, Guide, and Protect Abused Children and their Families.
CACs support and coordinate the efforts of a team of professionals consisting of:
- law enforcement investigators
- child protective service workers
- medical professionals
- mental health professionals
- victim advocates
In the neutral setting of the CAC, team members can collaborate on strategies that will aid investigators and prosecutors without causing further harm to the victim. This innovative, multidisciplinary approach significantly increases the likelihood of a successful outcome in court and long-term healing for the child.
