Empowering. Restoring. Preventing.

Because every child deserves a childhood.

Some children grow up knowing they are loved. They are the lucky ones. Sadly, many others do not. They have been mistreated and damaged by abuse or neglect. At ECCAC, we believe every child deserves the privilege of a childhood filled with love. We embrace the children who come to us and offer a hand to hold along their journey of healing through empowerment and restoration.

We heal hearts.

As the illustrations on this page are created one layer at a time, at ECCAC, we restore childhood layer by layer. We overcome abuse and neglect from all angles through advocacy and evidence-based treatments and work diligently to educate the communities we serve and prevent future instances from occurring. We work with children and their families to help transform them through patience and love,  healing their hearts and focusing on their positive future, full of hope and potential.

About Us

Our services.


Each one of us is powerful beyond measure. We re-establish the power that has been taken from children who have suffered from abuse or neglect. With renewed empowerment, these children learn to advocate and create a better future for themselves.



We transform children by restoring childhood joy and hope for the future. Through our treatment and therapy programs, the hearts healed today give children a chance to thrive tomorrow and reach their full potential.

Treatment & Therapy


We work daily to build a healthier future by preventing child abuse and neglect before it begins. Through awareness and education, we can end the negative cycles of trauma and create a future focused on joy and childhood innocence.


We’re making a difference

By supporting, healing, and educating today’s children, we are building a better tomorrow.
