Family Advocacy

Victim support and advocacy services are available to all CAC clients and their non-offending caregivers and family members as part of the MDT. The focus of family advocacy and victim support is to help reduce additional trauma for the child and non-offending caregivers and family members and to improve outcomes. Crisis assessment and intervention, advocacy, and support services help to identify each child and family’s unique needs, reduce fear and anxiety, and expedite access to appropriate services. Families can be assisted through the various phases of crisis management with problem solving, access to critical treatment and other services, ongoing education,  and information and support.
