Children's Advocacy Center of Southeastern Indiana

In 2009, a major change occurred in Southeast Indiana regarding the treatment of children who had been victims of physical or sexual abuse.

In the past, children often had to tell what happened again and again to different people - the school personnel, detectives, child protective services, psychologists and more - often in locations where a child might feel vulnerable.

Since 2009, the Children's Advocacy Center of Southeastern Indiana (formerly Region 15 Children's Advocacy Center) has been serving hundreds of children in Southeast Indiana who were victims of child abuse. The Center was created as a safe, child friendly place where children could come to be interviewed about the trauma. A place where several agencies came together with one goal in mind: to provide security, justice and healing for abused children and their non-offending family members. By working together, Children's Advocacy Center of Southeastern Indiana is moving our communities to a much better place.

Now when a child has a terrible truth to tell, there's a safe and supportive place to talk one on one with a trained individual in a single interview.

Mission
