Helping victims become children again.
The mission of the Memphis Child Advocacy Center is to serve children who are victims of sexual and severe physical abuse through prevention, education, and intervention.
The Memphis Child Advocacy Center staff includes therapists, educators, interviews, and others working to keep children safe.
The Memphis Child Advocacy Center (MCAC) provides a warm and caring atmosphere for sexually abused children and their families to receive coordinated services. These include counseling, interviews, and a team review, which takes place when an allegation of child sexual abuse has been made. In this child-focused, child-friendly environment, representatives from many disciplines make decisions about investigation, treatment, and prosecution of child abuse cases.
The MCAC, a private, non-profit organization, is a cooperative effort among agencies in Shelby County.
