The CAC Team Approach

The CAC model is based on a philosophy that  it takes a team of dedicated professionals sharing their knowledge, skills, and resources to serve the needs of children and families who are victims of abuse.  The Children’s Advocacy Center of Bristol County serves as a child friendly place for community partners with collective expertise to participate in the investigation of reported allegations of sexual abuse, witness to violence, and abuse to disabled adults.  The Sexual Abuse Intervention Network (SAIN) is a component of the Children’s Advocacy Center which is a process of investigation, prosecution, AND healing for child victims of abuse. The CAC assists in the tracking and monitoring of cases to ensure no child falls through the cracks. The team works together to reduce the trauma victims experience and enhance the ability to respond to child maltreatment.


Report Child Abuse (Mandated Reporting)

If you suspect any case of child abuse or neglect, report it immediately to the local police department or by calling the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families. Bristol County affiliated DCF offices are located in Attleboro, Fall River, and New Bedford. After hour reports can be made to the Department of Children and Families (DCF) hotline at 1-800-792-5200. Referrals for forensic interviews to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Bristol County must come from the Department of Children and Families, local police departments and/or the District Attorney’s office. Medical consultation and examination from the Pediatric Sexual Assault Nurse  Examiners are available to community medical providers as needed and can be accessed at the CAC, 508-674-6111. Incidents of abuse to disabled adults should be reported to the Disabled Persons Protection Commission (DPPC), 1-800-426-9009.
