Children's Advocacy Centers have been a crucial part of child sexual abuse investigations and sexual violence service provision in Maine since 2005. Maine's sexual assault support centers are committed to quality services for victims of child sexual abuse, and many communities across Maine are in the process of community needs assessments regarding Children's Advocacy Centers.
Androscoggin Children's Advocacy Center
The Androscoggin Children's Advocacy Center's mission is to promote the healing of victims of child abuse by providing a strong community response to investigation, treatment, and prevention of child abuse. This is accomplished by providing a safe, child-friendly environment for child abuse investigations and treatment; supporting a multi-disciplinary process to working with child abuse victims; and working with the community to develop and enhance services to child abuse victims and prevention programs. The ACAC provides services to children in Androscoggin, Franklin, and Oxford Counties.
