The National Children's Advocacy Center (NCAC) recognizes that to protect children from abuse, prevention services must address individuals, families and the community. The local prevention programs of the NCAC reach out to almost 10,000 people in Huntsville/Madison County, Alabama each year. These programs offer a range of services to parents, children, schools and a variety of individuals and organizations throughout our community.We all want to have a safe, healthy, and happy community.
As a child-focused, multidisciplinary response to child abuse, the Children’s Advocacy Center was established to prevent the re-victimization of sexually abused children by the system’s response to their cases. The “multidisciplinary team approach” involves law enforcement, child protective services, prosecution, mental health, medical, family/victim advocacy, and other resources in a model community response to child sexual abuse. Professionals across this nation have recognized that by focusing on abused children, they can work together to achieve better outcomes for young victims and families.
