Leading the effort against child sexual abuse.
The Children’s Advocacy Center of Kent County has led the local effort to recognize, report and reduce child sexual abuse since 1993. Along the way, we’ve helped thousands of children and families achieve healing and justice with services being provided at no cost.

The CAC is proud to be a safe space where all are welcome and deserve a path to healing aligned with their identity. Learn more here.
