The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a sharp increase in demand for services to support children who are victims of sexual and physical abuse. Child Advocacy Center staff and partners are essential. CACs have been open during the pandemic to ensure that child victims of abuse may begin their healing journey. Child Advocacy Center services are one, if not the primary, safety net for abused children.
