The Path To Hope And Healing Starts Here.

The Children’s Advocacy Center of the Bluegrass (CACBG) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the trauma experienced by child victims of sexual abuse. The organization provides a coordinated, multi-disciplinary approach to the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child sexual abuse cases across these 17 Central Kentucky counties; Anderson, Bourbon, Boyle, Clark, Estill, Fayette, Franklin, Garrard, Harrison, Jessamine, Lincoln, Madison, Mercer, Nicholas, Powell, Scott and Woodford counties.  Each year, nearly 600 children come to the Center for forensic interviews, medical examinations, counseling and support. All services are provided in a nurturing, friendly and safe environment at no cost to a child’s family. The Children’s Advocacy Center also offers education and training to improve community response to child sexual abuse.

Family Advocacy

Because sexual abuse is often committed by someone known and trusted, children and parents can feel isolated by extended family or other community members.

Medical Examinations

The Children’s Advocacy Center of the Bluegrass operates a child-friendly, on-site medical clinic to evaluate those children who have reported inappropriate physical contact.

Forensic Interviews

Interviewers at the Children’s Advocacy Center of the Bluegrass are specially trained to talk to and interact with children while assessing their developmental capabilities.

Counseling Services

The Children’s Advocacy Center of the Bluegrass offers short-term counseling services for sexually abused children. Children are seen at no cost for up to twelve sessions.

Our Mission

The Center’s mission is to reduce the trauma experienced by sexually abused children by providing services to them in a nurturing, friendly and safe environment. Additionally, the Center strives to improve the procedures by which child sexual abuse cases are handled in our 17-county Bluegrass Region. Our goal is to foster the healing and recovery process for victims of child sexual abuse.

 

The Children’s Advocacy Center of the Bluegrass coordinates all agencies involved in the investigation of child sexual abuse, and provides education to professionals and the public about abuse. All services are provided at no cost to children and their non-offending families. The CACBG provides a child-friendly setting where a skilled team of professionals come together to investigate the allegations in an unbiased, supportive location, provide therapeutic support and offer victim assistance services.
