$7,500 goal



The mission of the Children's Advocacy Center of NEPA is to provide excellence in the assessment and treatment of child abuse and neglect.

Our child-centered approach helps children begin their healing journey and prevent trauma from having a lasting effect on their lives. When it comes to healing victims and survivors of child abuse, it takes more than a village; it takes a multidisciplinary team of experts and community partners to be the catalyst for hope and healing in the lives of the children and communities we live.

As part of a network of more than 40 Children’s Advocacy Centers across the Commonwealth, we provide the following services to Lackawanna County and surrounding areas:

  • Medical Examinations and Assessment
  • Child Abuse Prevention Education
  • Child Advocacy Services
  • Counseling Coordination with Referral Agencies
  • Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
  • Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
  • Forensic Interviews
  • Professional Consultation
  • Expert Witness Testimony
  • Case Review
  • Case Tracking

We are aware that the vital services we provide are dependent upon of the support of our community. On behalf of the CAC/NEPA’s Board of Directors, our dedicated Team of professionals, and the child victims of abuse and neglect we serve, thank you for supporting the CAC/NEPA. Together, we can create a positive change for the children of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
