Do You Care About Children Who’ve Experienced Abuse?
- Do you want to make sure that children who’ve experienced some of the worst traumas a child can experience have a voice?
- Do you want to invest your time, talents and treasure into something that can make a difference?
- Do you want to help strengthen the families of our community?
- Do you want to help reduce the trauma that a child has suffered from being abused?
If so, you’ve reached the right place. We’re the Friends of the Frederick (Maryland) Child Advocacy Center and we’re always looking for people like you to help us make the Frederick area a safe place for every child to grow up.
We are a non-profit organization of volunteers whose purpose is to increase awareness of child abuse and to support the mission of the Child Advocacy Center (CAC), a caring and a listening place that offers hope to victims and their non offending family members. It is the combined wisdom and skill of a multidisciplinary team of trained professionals who work with victims to investigate the issues and bring about results with a clear focus on the child and family.
Abused children and their families will find the CAC offers a private one centralized place where professionals provide medical, law enforcement, mental health, victim advocacy, and prosecutorial services within one location. It is less overwhelming for the victims and results in a more coordinated response to begin the process of healing.
