Our goal is to spread positivity throughout Springfield and the surrounding areas and help those who need help the most. A single moment of impact has the potential to for change! One positive change can lead to a shock wave of impact and positivity.
If you want to help us impact 85,000 people in our community, click the donate button and follow the link over to The Volt Foundation donation page where you can donate via credit or debit card. You can also swing by either of our branches to donate. Once again, Volt will match all donations made to The Child Advocacy Center through November 1st, at which point we will be shifting our focus to another non profit in the area!
One Spark Can Ignite A Flame!
The Child Advocacy Center
The Child Advocacy Center’s mission is twofold – serving the needs of abused and neglected children in Southwest and South Central Missouri, and providing education to break abuse cycles and ultimately prevent child abuse in our region. They are the largest child advocacy center in the state of Missouri, serving 16 counties in the southwest and south central regions of the state.
CAC is accredited by the National Children’s Alliance, and serves as a safe, caring place where abused children can begin their journeys toward justice, healing, and an end to their abuse. This national accreditation demonstrates their commitment to meeting and adhering to the highest standards of practice set for child advocacy centers in the United States.
Their professional staff members place the needs of the children first as they work with compassion and purpose, collaborating with law enforcement, the Children’s Division and other agencies to investigate and prosecute each individual case.
The CAC believes that child abuse is a community problem that requires a community response. Multiple organizations within southwest and south central Missouri work together to protect our region’s children from abuse and neglect.
The Child Advocacy Center’s role is to provide a safe place for children to tell their story, and to bring partner agencies together to facilitate a coordinated investigation and a comprehensive response to each child abuse case. Their facility serves as a central meeting place at the beginning of the investigation, where law enforcement officers, juvenile officers, prosecutors, medical personnel, Missouri Children’s Division caseworkers, therapists, and CAC staff can engage in a coordinated approach to manage each case with open communication, information sharing and collaborative decision making. They also work closely with other local and regional agencies to connect the children and families we serve with the community services they need to help them through their crisis.
