CAC-Children´s Advocacy Center

The Plymouth County Children´s Advocacy Center (CAC) offers a comprehensive approach to serving child victims and their families.   The Center coordinates and supports an interdisciplinary response in a child-friendly environment that promotes children´s safety, health, and well-being.

The CAC carries out its goals by:

  • Offering services and treatment for children and their families including forensic interviews, advocacy, crisis intervention, counseling referrals, and medical services when appropriate

  • Providing multi-disciplinary investigations involving all agencies responsible for responding to child abuse

  • Offering professional training and community outreach to broaden the understanding of the causes and effects of child abuse in order to provide the best response possible to allegations of abuse

Children in Plymouth County between the ages of three and eighteen, who are the victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, or severe neglect, receive coordinated services from the
multi-disciplinary team.   All services are developmentally and culturally customized to meet each child´s individual needs.  

Member Agencies:

No one agency or professional alone can prevent and treat the problem of child abuse.
A multi-disciplinary response is essential.   The CAC has developed a collaborative partnership between law enforcement, The Department of Children and Families, the Department of Public Health, prosecution, mental health agencies, and Brockton Hospital, to serve the best interests of the child.

The CAC is a child-friendly facility that will host staff from agencies with the primary responsibility of investigating child abuse including; local and / or State Police, the Department of Children and Families, and the Plymouth County District Attorney´s Office.   The Center is fiscally managed by BAMSI, Inc.

The CAC is located at: 309 Pleasant Street, Brockton, MA 02301.
