HHCAC, an accredited member of the National Children’s Alliance, was incorporated in 2013. It is an independent, non-profit corporation funded by community donations and grants (federal, state, county, and city) specifically to (1) prevent “system” re-traumatization of child abuse victims, (2) provide a multidisciplinary team approach to address the needs of child abuse victims, and (3) to educate the community to prevent child abuse.
The program’s approach facilitates communication among the multidisciplinary team of agencies that investigate and prosecute child abuse. It provides a safe, child-friendly facility which is designed for abused children and the agencies involved in child abuse investigations.
The HHCAC current annual operating budget is approximately $650,000 which will need to grow over the next several years to accommodate planned expansion of services.
