Be brave and others will follow.
Our partners are dedicated to supporting children in their journey of healing.
ECCAC was founded to provide a safe environment for children of abuse and neglect to tell their stories one time, receive all the help they need to overcome their trauma, and begin to heal. We could not provide this safe haven without the cooperation and support of our 11 state and local agency partners. Each has either an office in the ECCAC Centers or works out of our facilities when necessary—allowing children and their families or caregivers to come to one location for the entire investigation and healing process.
