Did you know...

•1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday
•1 in 5 children are solicited sexually while on the internet
•Nearly 70% of all reported sexual assaults are on children age 17 and younger
•The number of children served by Child Advocacy Centers in New York State increased by 73% over the past 6 years… and that number continues to grow.
•In 2013, there were over 18,500 children in NY who received services from a local Child Advocacy Center.

How do Child Advocacy Centers make a difference?

•Helping victims heal...
Child victims of sexual abuse who receive services at CACs are 4x more likely to receive forensic medical exams and increased referrals for mental health treatment than children served by communities who do not have a Child Advocacy Center.

•Holding offenders accountable…
Increased usage of Child Advocacy Centers has resulted in increased successful prosecutions of child abuse perpetrators. One study shows an average 94% conviction rate for Child Advocacy Center cases carried forward.

•Saving money…
The Child Advocacy Center model saves court, child protection, and investigative dollars averaging a $1000 savings per case compared to non-CAC communities.
