To promote the well-being of children though prevention, education, treatment, and advocacy
A message from Southern Virginia Child Advocacy Center
Each year in the United States, millions of children are abused, neglected, or abandoned. Eventually, many of these children end up in court with a judge deciding their future. Every child deserves to begin their journey to recovery through a children's advocacy center, a child-friendly place where even the smallest and most vulnerable of child victims can feel safe telling what has happened to them and where their healing can begin.

We offer the benefit of immediate follow-up on child abuse reports, better coordination of medical and mental health referrals, fewer child victim interviews, increased successful prosecution and a consistent continuum of support services to victims and their non-offending family members.
