Children's Advocacy Center of Delaware

We do everything possible to care for the physical and emotional needs of victims of child abuse. In 1996, the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) of Delaware opened its first center location here at the hospital, providing children in New Castle County with immediate, integrated medical care and support in a child-friendly, secure environment.

About Children's Advocacy Center

Today, the CAC, with centers serving all of Delaware’s kids, expedites child abuse investigations and prosecution by coordinating:

  • forensic interviews with children and witnesses
  • mental health evaluations and referrals
  • medical exams
  • community outreach
  • advocacy and prevention

These critical services help reduce the devastating effects child abuse has on children, families, and the community. We’re proud to play a part in this important program.
