Children’s Advocacy Centers of Washington (CACWA) envisions a world where every Washington child has access to the consistent, evidence-based services provided by a CAC. If your organization is interested in developing a CAC in an area where services are not currently available, CACWA can help you get started.  

Starting a CAC

The National Children’s Alliance has provided an outline of steps that must be addressed before a community can really get started developing a CAC. While the activities are listed in approximate order, some will need to take place concurrently and there will be variations in each community.
