The Children’s Advocacy Center of Bristol County, a private, non-profit agency, provides services to children and intellectually disabled adults who have been victims of severe physical abuse, witness to violence or sexual abuse. Over 90% of all cases fall into the latter category.
Based upon a national, child-focused model, the center provides a sensitive and coordinated response to allegations and disclosures of child abuse. For each child abuse case, a multi-disciplinary team is formed comprised of law enforcement, Department of Children & Families, District Attorney’s office, Massachusetts Pedi-SANE program and community-based agencies. This collaborative approach is at the heart of the evidence-based model which provides a place and process for the child to provide the details of their victimization only one time during the investigative period in an effort to minimize their trauma.
