Children's Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida
Since 1981, Children’s Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida, Inc. (CAC) has advocated for a healthy, safe community for children through a multidisciplinary team approach to child abuse and neglect. The Agency’s mission is to improve the lives of children and their families through a coordinated response to child abuse and neglect. Initially operating as the Child Protection Team, the Agency’s sole purpose was to determine whether or not abuse had occurred. Over the years, CAC expanded services in response to community needs. Today, the Agency continues to offer abuse determination services, as well as therapeutic counseling, parenting education, and prevention programs in Lee, Hendry, Glades, and Charlotte Counties. It is the only children’s advocacy center in the four-county area accredited by the National Children’s Alliance, and one of the largest in the State of Florida.
