The mission of the Cavern City CAC is:
• To provide child abuse prevention and awareness training to children within their reach;
• To provide forensically sound child interviews to service agencies;
• To provide SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) services;
• To refer victims to appropriate follow-up services.
All these services and any other are to be provided with the ultimate goal of protection and enhancement of the well-being of victims and children.
The Cavern City and Lea Co. Child Advocacy Centers are dedicated to providing fact finding interviews for children and adolescents when there is suspected abuse, neglect, or if they witness a crime.
Our interviewers use research based methods that are forensically defensible for law enforcement and CYFD. The CAC also offers advocacy services, counseling services, child and adult prevention & awareness programs, and sexual assault & domestic violence examinations.
The CAC is a part of the Eddy Co. and Lea Co. Child Abuse Multidisciplinary Teams that are composed of representatives from the District Attorney's Office, local and state Law Enforcement agencies, CYFD, Child Forensic Interviewers, Medical personnel, Mental Health professionals, and Victim Advocates.
