The Child Advocacy Center (CAC), a program of the Chemung County Department of Social Services Children and Family Services, makes it possible for a child to go to one location and talk about their abuse. It helps begin the healing process for child victims of abuse by providing a child-friendly setting that is physically and psychologically safe.  The CAC is the result of a partnership between the Department of Human Services, the District Attorney's Office, law enforcement, victim services, medical providers, and mental health services working together to address cases of sexual abuse, physical abuse, fatalities, or near deaths, and serious domestic violence.

Chemung County Child Advocacy Center seamlessly integrates and coordinates the services of all of the agencies.  Services provided include: Forensic interviews, medical evaluations, mental health referrals, victim advocacy and support, case review and tracking, information and referral, and community outreach and education.

The collaboration increases prosecution and accountability of perpetrators, while promoting safety and support to victims and the non-offending family members.
