The Children’s Advocacy Center in Covina, CA
The Children’s Advocacy Center is committed to using a multi-disciplinary team approach to assist children who are victims of physical or sexual abuse, or who have witnessed acts of violence, as well as providing these services to people of any age with developmental disabilities. All services will be provided in a supportive environment by individuals trained in national best practices to optimize positive outcomes and reduce trauma.
The children’s advocacy center’s annual gala:
Many thanks to all who attended our annual “Be a Hero for Children” Gala! Together we raised $60K dollars to support children who’ve been victims of abuse. You’ve made it possible for the kids we serve to have a safe place for them to speak their truths.
what we do
The Children’s Advocacy Center serves over 370 families per year in the east end of Los Angeles County and the east San Gabriel Valley for child victims of crime. We help provide accurate and truthful information to investigators, clinicians, and other professionals in a safe and comfortable environment for the child. We are a multi-disciplinary non-profit agency that provides recorded forensic interviews in a child-friendly setting to children who may have been abused either physically or sexually, or children who have witnessed violence.
Thank you to the Ahmanson Foundation for a generous grant that has given us the opportunity to get new furniture for the CAC. Thank you to PH Design for designing the new furniture in our waiting rooms!
In a further effort to minimize trauma to children, the CAC Board of Directors has approved the use of a therapy dog at the CAC to greet and wait with children and their families! Therapy dogs empower victims, provide emotional support, and minimize stress, which is consistent with our mission. Read more about this program here.
