Georgia Center for Child Advocacy
The Center for Child Advocacy’s mission is to champion the needs of sexually and severely physically abused children through prevention, intervention, therapy, and collaboration.These services are provided at no cost to children who reside in or were abused in DeKalb or Fulton County. The Georgia Center for Child Advocacy’s role throughout the criminal investigation is to focus on the child’s needs, rather than focusing on the crime itself.
They also train adults through a statewide initiative to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. Recently, they launched a new training curriculum called Connections Matter, which embeds the Strengthening Families protective factors in discussing the importance of relationships in preventing adverse childhood experiences.
