About Us

The West Virginia Child Advocacy Network is a 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 West Virginia Child Advocacy Network provides training, support, technical assistance and leadership on a statewide level to local children’s and child advocacy centers and communities throughout West Virginia responding to reports of child abuse and neglect.

A children’s advocacy center is a child-focused, facility-based program in which representatives from many disciplines, including law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical and victim advocacy, child advocacy, work together to conduct interviews and make team decisions about investigation, treatment, management and prosecution of child abuse cases.

The West Virginia Child Advocacy Network strongly believes that the combined professional wisdom and skill of the multidisciplinary team approach results in a more complete understanding of case issues and the most effective child and family focused system response possible.

The West Virginia Child Advocacy Network is a state chapter of the National Children's Alliance.
