The Child Advocacy Center (CAC) of Calvert County celebrated its one year anniversary on July 31, 2019.
The CAC provides a coordinated response and a safe environment for children who have been abused or may have witnessed a violent incident. The CAC advocates on the children’s behalf to reduce trauma and to provide resources needed to help them begin the healing process. Since the CAC has opened, the organization has conducted over 80 interviews of child victims. Numerous arrests have been made as a result of these interviews.
The CAC is a collaboration of the Calvert County State’s Attorney’s Office, the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office, Maryland State Police, Calvert County Department of Social Services, and the Calvert County Health Department Crisis Intervention Center.
The CAC Board of Directors would like to extend a thank you to everyone that has worked to make the first year a success.
