Our Mission

As the Children’s Advocacy Center serving Boone and Winnebago Counties, the mission of the Carrie Lynn Children's Center is to provide a comprehensive multi-disciplinary response to child sexual abuse and serious physical abuse allegations in a neutral, child-focused setting. The purpose is to coordinate and track the investigations, medical treatment, counseling referrals, prosecution and training in order to protect the best interests of the child victims and their families.

Philosophy

It is recognized that each child and family has an inherent right to be treated with dignity.

It is recognized that child abuse is a community problem. No single agency, individual or discipline has the necessary knowledge, skills or resources to provide all the assistance needed by abused children and their families.

It is recognized that the combining of all experience and professional knowledge of DCFS Investigators and follow-up workers, law enforcement officers and detectives, prosecutors and medical/mental health professionals can result in a more thorough understanding of case issues and can provide the best possible system response.

It is recognized that open communication and case coordination among agencies are critical for protecting the child and promoting justice and healing.

It is recognized that the protection and best interests of each child will be foremost in all recommendations related to investigation, prosecution, treatment referrals and follow-up.

It is recognized that “…multiple interviews by multiple interviewers have been found to be emotionally damaging to children…” (National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect).

History

The Children’s Advocacy Center (Carrie Lynn Children’s Center) is an intergovernmental agency designed to provide an effective countywide multi-disciplinary approach to child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse cases.   In March of 1989, Winnebago County State’s Attorney, Paul Logli, convened an ad hoc committee in March of 1989 to explore ways to ensure broader inter-agency coordination in the handling of child sexual abuse cases.  The Children’s Advocacy Center resulted from the consensus of the committee that more could be done to help child victims of sexual abuse. Organizational work began, and in December of 1989, the Children’s Advocacy center Advisory Board met for the first time. A protocol was completed and filed in August of 1990.
