Welcome to the
Child Advocacy Center
The Child Advocacy Center is a place for children who are victims/alleged victims of child abuse to receive support after a report of child abuse has been made. Located in Charlotte, Tennessee, (Dickson County) we work with police and child protection workers to talk with children in our safe and child-friendly location. We serve Cheatham, Dickson, Houston, Humphreys, and Stewart counties in Middle Tennessee. The information you will find on our website will explain what happens at CAC, but please feel free to contact us for more information.
What is a Child Advocacy Center?
A children’s advocacy center (CAC) is a child-focused, facility-based program in which representatives from many disciplines, including law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical, victim advocacy and child advocacy, work together to conduct interviews and make team decisions about investigation, treatment, management and prosecution of child abuse cases.
