Coffee County Children's Advocacy Center, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. The Coffee County CAC was founded in late 2004 by a group of local activists led by the Coffee County Church Women United. In June of 2005, we officially opened our doors to serve the children of Coffee County. We depend on the support of our community and are thankful for the support we have received to date. We couldn't serve victims of child abuse without the generous donations of time, energy and money. Donations may be tax deductible.

Specific benefits to children of a Children's Advocacy Center are:
* Less trauma to the child due to a single interview
* More immediate follow-up to reported cases
* More efficient mental health and medical treatment
* Increased successful prosecution
* Consistent support for child victim(s) and the non-offending caregivers

We seek to improve the multi-disciplinary agency response to sexual and physical abuse of children and reduce the trauma they encounter. We aim to educate the community with knowledge and materials to prevent child abuse and work to increase Coffee County CAC's self-sufficiency through sound management and growth of our financial base. There is never a fee for our clients.

The Coffee County Children's Advocacy Center does not discriminate. All clients who are eligible for services will receive services regardless of race, color, national origin, religion or gender.
