Our Services

Coastal Children's Advocacy Center provides FREE services to children who have been sexually or severely physically abused, or witnessed violence, and to their non-offending family members. Those services include:

  • Video-recording forensic interviews by trained interviewers in a cheerful, confidential, child-friendly location. (Videotaping reduces the need for multiple interviews of young victims, thus decreasing the trauma of disclosure and preserving the child’s initial statement for court purposes);
  • Individual counseling and family support for child victims and non-offending parents/caretakers;
  • Crisis Intervention and emotional support;
  • Information on child abuse and the criminal justice system;
  • Support groups for victimized children and adolescents and for non-offending parents/caretakers;
  • Community education and professional training on child abuse;
  • Referrals to other community agencies, including medical, investigative, advocacy, therapeutic and Victims Compensation resources;
  • A library of materials on child abuse, parenting, childhood trauma, recovery and related issues;
  • Interdisciplinary review of cases by professionals from all involved disciplines.
