Mission & History


The mission of the York County Children’s Advocacy Center is to reduce the trauma of child abuse investigations, foster professional collaboration and cooperation and promote education and advocacy regarding the prevention of child abuse within the community.

The York County Children's Advocacy Center offers a safe place for child abuse victims to receive forensic interviews and forensic medical exams. We facilitate a county-wide multidisciplinary team process to provide coordinated child abuse investigations. 


The York County Children’s’ Advocacy Center (CAC) was established as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit in 2003, and opened our doors to provide program services of forensic interviews and exams for alleged victims of child abuse in 2006.
