Child Advocacy Center of Cayuga County

Child Advocacy Center of Cayuga County

There are numerous benefits to having a local Child Advocacy Center. Child Advocacy Centers assist law enforcement and Child Protective Services with the handling of abuse cases. They’re also a huge resource and location of support for the child and their family. The Child Advocacy Initiative of Cayuga Counseling hosts education, therapy and advocacy services as well as a medical component that allows victims and their families to receive services in one “child friendly” location.
