Office of Justice Programs' Blog Discusses Children's Advocacy Centers

The Office of Justice Programs has posted a new blog discussing Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs) in recognition of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Children's Advocacy Centers coordinate the investigation, treatment, and prosecution of child abuse cases nationwide. The blog discusses OJJDP's funding of training and technical assistance through four regional CACs that support state chapters and local centers. OJJDP also funds the National Children's Alliance, which provides national leadership to support local centers. The blog details the mission of the National Children's Advocacy Center—a model for more than 1,000 CACs nationwide—and the CACs response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
