Child Advocacy Center
Where small voices will be heard...
The Sanilac County Child Advocacy Center was established in November of 2013 as a community based, child-focused and child-friendly facility where representatives from many disciplines meet to discuss and make decisions about investigation, treatment and prosecution of child abuse cases. The primary goal of all CACs is to ensure that children are not further victimized by the intervention systems designed to protect them.
Since then we have grown by leaps and bounds. At the end of 2015, we became accredited through the National Children's Alliance which is a professional membership organization dedicated to helping local communities respond to allegations of child abuse in ways that are effective and efficient - and put the needs of child victims first.

The policy of the Sanilac County Child Advocacy Center is to accept reports of an alleged victim of severe physical abuse or sexual abuse from local law enforcement and or the Department of Health and Human Services. These are the only two entities that will be acknowledged as authorized referral sources.
