The Children’s Services Department includes the playroom, volunteer program, the children’s closet, art activities and gift and clothing donation drives. Children’s Services hosts the children’s annual Holiday Party, the Back to School Party and many Summer and annual holiday activities. The CAC’s on-site playroom, which is staffed by two CAC staff members as well as specially trained volunteers, provides a safe haven for children while awaiting services or during a lengthy investigation of alleged abuse. In addition, the department provides basic needs of food, clothing and toiletries for children as needed. The CAC enjoys working with many active volunteers who, following extensive background checks, have been trained to facilitate and coordinate these direct services to child victims and their families.
