Mission: Our mission is to provide a safe place for child abuse victims and their families to receive comprehensive services from dedicated professional interviewers, nurses, counselors and advocates in a child-friendly atmosphere through a coordinated team approach.
About: The Childrens Advocacy Center of Benton County opened January 10, 2000 to serve young sexual abuse victims in a child-friendly, supportive environment.
At the Childrens Advocacy Center abused children and their families can receive the support need to deal with their feelings about abuse.
We are available to serve all Benton County child abuse victims under age 18 after a report has been made to the child abuse hotline. We provide an interview room and two trained forensic interviewers (one bilingual); two child advocates; a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner who performs forensic medical exams at the center with our video colposcope (medical equipment specifically designed for these exams); and mental health providers who can meet with the child and non-offending family members for counseling and support groups at our center. All services are provided at no charge to the family. A deputy child abuse prosecutor and an Arkansas State Police Investigator also have offices at our center as part of the cooperative effort to coordinate services.
A caring, trained professional interviews a child victim only one time. This prevents victims from being re-traumatized during the investigation process. We use a coordinated, multi-disciplinary team process that is supported by the Department of Human Services, prosecutors, law enforcement officials and mental health professionals. And were in a facility that provides children with a child friendly and non-threatening interview room, medical examination room and play room to put them more at ease.
