It’s A Problem That Affects Us All
At present the counties served by the CACECM and across the nation, are faced with the reality: many of our children are being abused. Each year, the Children’s Advocacy Center of East Central Missouri and its multidisciplinary team members investigate many cases of suspected physical and sexual child abuse and provide services to many children and their families.

Who is involved?
The CACECM offers a coordinated, multidisciplinary intervention system involving agencies and the community.

  • The Children’s Division
  • The Prosecuting Attorney’s Office
  • Law Enforcement
  • The Juvenile Office
  • Medical Personnel
  • Mental Health Professionals
  • CAC Staff
  • Community Volunteers

Why are they involved?
Child victims of abuse need the careful attention of professionals trained to address their special needs. In the past, each victim seeking help faced multiple contacts with different community professionals, creating a maze of confusion for the child and family.

The Children’s Advocacy Center of East Central Missouri has changed all that. We are a part of a nationwide effort to reduce the trauma of abuse so children are not re-victimized by the system designed to protect them. With the support of the community, the CACECM enables the child to come to one place for safety, protection, and justice instead of going from agency to agency.
