The CAC Family Advocate assists the nonoffending parent or caretaker with services needed to maintain a safe and stable environment for their child. In addition, the Family Advocate provides emotional support to the caregiver as well as parenting information helpful to caregivers in meeting the needs of an abused child. The Family Advocate also assists caregivers in filing for Victim’s Compensation funds for the child victim.
The Victim’s Advocate is the first contact for the non-offending caregiver when the child first comes to the CAC for a forensic interview. She is also responsible for coordinating the Child Protective Investigative Team meetings, tracking case data, providing court liaison services, and court education/support to child victims.
The Prevention Education Coordinator is responsible for coordinating Adult Prevention training as well as the Children’s Education program. The Prevention Education Coordinator presents training sessions at the CAC, as well as in school/church training, and in school presentations for the Children’s Education portion.
