(This is Elvis, a trained Facility Dog, his job is to comfort children visiting our Children's Advocacy Center.)
In Fiscal Year 16, over 100 children sought the services of the Children's Advocacy Center NRV.
At The Children's Advocacy Center (CAC), suspected child abuse victims find a safe, child-friendly place to share their story by trained forensic interviewers. Family Advocates are on staff to provide services to the non-offending caregiver, making sure the child and family receive the needed services to begin healing.
Located in Christiansburg, the CAC serves Montgomery County, Floyd County, Pulaski County and Radford. The CAC model works within a multi-disciplinary Team (MDT) model, bringing together those involved in the investigation of child abuse cases. Children's Trust works with the MDTs in the above areas and will be expanding to Giles County, Bland County, Carroll County and Galax.
