Who We Are

The Southern Arizona Children's Advocacy Center is a safe and child-sensitive place where child victims of abuse undergo the initial steps of an investigation and begin to heal. Approximately 1000 children from throughout southern Arizona come to the Center each year. These children have suffered sexual molestation, physical assault, or extreme neglect. They tell their story of abuse to specially trained Forensic Interviewers in a comfortable setting, and they receive medical attention by a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. The heart of the Southern Arizona Children's Advocacy Center is the multidisciplinary team. The team includes representation from law enforcement, child protective services, prosecuting attorneys, medical and mental health, and education. The team combines expertise and professional knowledge for a more complete understanding of case issues and a more supportive response to the child victim and family.
