The purpose of this project is to ensure that all children served by Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) can access trauma-informed and evidenced-based therapy that will help them recover from the abuse they have experienced.
Children who experience sexual and other types of abuse benefit from trauma-informed and evidence-based therapy.
