What We Do
First Witness CAC provides neutral, fact-finding interviews for children, adolescents, and vulnerable adults who may have experienced sexual abuse, physical abuse, witnessed violence, or have been otherwise victimized.
All children and families served by First Witness CAC receive support and family advocacy services as part of the response to allegations of child abuse.
Facilitating a Multidisciplinary Team (MDT)
Children and families have the best outcomes when professionals work together and share their expertise.
All children who are suspected victims of child abuse and served by First Witness CAC are entitled to a medical exam conducted by a specialized medical provider.
Access to specialized mental health services is critical for abused children and their families to move forward in the healing process.
Each of us has a role in the safety and support of children that can help keep them safe from abuse.
