Welcome to the Athens County Child Advocacy Center

The Athens County Child Advocacy Center (CAC) provides services for child sexual abuse survivors and their families in a child-friendly environment.  The CAC serves as a centralized location for interviewing and examining children who are survivors of sexual abuse.  The children are interviewed by specially-trained forensic interviewers, and cases are managed by a multi-disciplinary team comprised of Athens County Children Services, Athens County prosecutors, law enforcement officers, mental health counselors, victim advocates, and medical professionals.
