The Walker County Children’s Advocacy Center (WCCAC) is a local non-profit serving child victims of physical and sexual abuse and neglect.

The WCCAC is a multidisciplinary partnership between professionals that investigates allegations of child abuse and exploitation in a child-friendly, developmentally and clinically appropriate and culturally sensitive manner. The WCCAC fosters collaboration among the multiple agencies necessarily involved in child abuse cases.

The WCCAC uses teamwork to make a difference and eliminates the traumatic process of child abuse victims having to be interviewed repeatedly by well-meaning social, legal, medical, mental health and law enforcement agencies.

Our multidisciplinary team (“MDT”) approach reduces the number of investigative interviews and court appearances for the victim, allows for medical and mental health services to be more quickly and effectively coordinated for the victim and non-offending family members, and ensures that the team has the necessary information to reach a result in each case that is in the best interest of the child.
