The Lincoln County Coalition Against Child Abuse, Inc. is a citizen-based organization dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect in all forms and providing intervention and treatment when our children have become victims.
The Lincoln County Coalition Against Child Abuse’s Child Advocacy Center is dedicated to being the primary source of relief through a coordination of efforts when a child is victimized. The Child Advocacy Center was established to respond rapidly and effectively to reported cases of child abuse, with intent to minimize further trauma to the child and non-offending family members, to promote appropriate therapy for the child and non-offending family members, and to follow-up with the child and family throughout the periods of investigation and therapy.
The CAC is a comfortable, safe, child-friendly place where young victims of abuse and neglect and their families come to have a forensic interview and receive referrals for medical care, therapy services, and other resources they may need.
We provide forensic interviews, which are neutral, fact-finding, non-leading interviews provided by specially trained individuals. We also provide referrals for other resources and follow-up care, including court accompaniment.
The CAC needs volunteers for fundraising events, monetary donations, and in-kind donations (such as gently used stuffed animals, paper products, and cleaning products) to keep the center running.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and continue seeking to achieve our mission.
