We’re inspiring hope, ending abuse, and leading the fight for safe and healthy childhoods in Pennsylvania.
We believe every child deserves the chance to learn and laugh, explore and grow, and live into their full potential as adults. And PennCAC is here to help create and contribute to a process that makes that possible.
We want nothing more than to be part of a world where “child” and “abuse” no longer go together.
Established in 2007, PennCAC is a statewide nonprofit membership association of over 40 individual Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) in our Keystone State. It is our mission to promote and support the development, growth, and continuation of the multidisciplinary approach and Children’s Advocacy Centers for the protection of Pennsylvania’s children.
We do this by providing resources, training, and technical assistance to CACs and their professional partners, by creating greater public awareness about the vital work being done by CACs to stop abuse and help children heal, and by working to improve the delivery of a collaborative model of care in areas where CAC services are limited.
Children’s Advocacy Centers of Pennsylvania is an accredited State Chapter of the National Children’s Alliance (NCA).
