Western Regional CAC Director Tool Kit

Child-Focused Setting
Children’s Advocacy Centers exist to provide a safe, developmentally appropriate, and comfortable place for children and their families to access the services they need to begin the process of healing.
While there is no one way to decorate or design a CAC, NCA Standard for Accreditation states that the child-focused setting be comfortable, private and both emotionally and physically safe for diverse populations of children and their non-offending family members.
Although the average age of children served at CACs is 8 years, care should be taken to make sure children of all ages feel comfortable and welcome in your center.
In addition, the space has to provide a space for live observation of interviews by MDT members and space for team members to meet with families in private.
