Child Advocacy Center

of Marshall County

Welcome

Who are we?

The Child Advocacy Center offers a safe, neutral, child-friendly environment for children who are suspected victims of child abuse. A friendly staff at the Child Advocacy Center greets children and their families.

We offer a safe, neutral, child-friendly environment for children who are suspected victims of child abuse to be interviewed. A friendly staff at the Child Advocacy Center greets children and their families. A team of investigators including the Department of Human Resources, Law Enforcement and the District Attorney’s office attend the interviews. The child is taken into a private quiet room by a professional from the Department of Human Resources, where the child is interviewed. This room is designed with hidden cameras so that other team investigators may view the interview through a closed circuit television from another office. This eliminates repetitive interviews for the child, thus reducing the amount of trauma for the child.

We have a licensed child therapist on site for follow-up treatment after the interview takes place. The therapist will provide counseling services for the child victim as long as necessary.
