Children's Advocacy Center

The Chester County Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) is a child-focused center that coordinates the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child abuse while helping children heal. The CAC emphasizes the coordination of investigation and intervention services by bringing together professionals and agencies as a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) to create a child-focused approach to child abuse cases.

All community members – mandated reporters, child welfare systems, family, and friends – are responsible for the care and protection of children. Intervening on their behalf requires a willingness to bring child abuse to the attention of the proper authorities.

If you suspect a child is being abused, call CHILDLINE at 1-800-932-0313.

Learn to recognize, react, and report child sexual abuse by taking a free virtual Stewards of Children workshop. Contact County Coordinator Elisa Mendoza at [email protected] or 610-344-5576 for more info.
